Odysseus's Bail out.

mixed media on paper

Odysseus is often accredited with the invention of the Trojan Horse,also he was inside the horse as it was taken into Troy as a gift. So in my scenario he both helped to invent the problem, but also comes to the rescue, with a possible bailout plan for the economy. In terms of Homer's epic narrative he is both brave but a flawed individual. His beard is the sea of change, an odyssey ahead of him.
