The worst part about this is that TEPCO is NOT bankrupt, when they should be. There's no way the government (and by extension, taxpayers) should be footing the bill until Tepco goes under. Giving Tepco a bailout, which the government has already been in effect doing, is paramount to condoning evil corporate governance.
The stock has of course fallen quite a bit, but it's actually back up from its June lows, and is still valued at 700+ billion yen. Think how much land that could buy.
