JP Morgan Chase, like Dr. Frankenstein's Monster, is a combination of banks that had already died. On March 16 of 2008, JP Morgan was forced by the Fed to buy Bear Sterns after a failed attempt to simply funnel money to Bear through JP Morgan. JP Morgan was given a $30 billion guarantee by the Fed for the deal and Henry Paulson insisted that the sale be made for $2 a share. This was later revised to $10 a share to get approval from Bear's board. In September of 2008, Federal regulators seized Washington Mutual and sold it to JP Morgan.
