The author reflects on why the U.S. furniture industry is hardly to get a bailout from the federal government. He says, the reason is that the furniture industry do not have any companies big enough to fail. He presents various measures to which the furniture companies will result to, in case they will experience failure, but are not qualified for bailout. He thinks, however, that the furniture industry can benefit from the federal rescue of other industries
