It's a bad deal all the way around. There's no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don't care who gets the credit. I don't care, so something will work out. If you do well, I'll do well. We'll have to wait and the gloom can fall behind. Progress will be made. It just takes time and faith. Nobody wants to take credit for the bad deals.
