Each week, the business section of newsday.com asks readers to take a poll on a business or  financial question and leave comments.

Each Sunday, Newsday publishes the results of the poll and some of the reader comments.  Join the conversation -- take the poll, leave a comment.

This week's question: Critics call the bailouts of banks and carmakers a giveaway to corporations at taxpayer expense, while supporters claim they prevented a depression. How would you describe them?

(Poll wording has been revised to replace the word "recession" with "depression.")
