What is it about the Financial Crisis that Paralyzes World Leaders?

My whole life, anytime a problem arose, there was always someone, usually with grey hair or no hair, who figured it out. Houses burnt down, people got sick, teenagers went to jail or got pregnant, bankruptcies occurred, marriages broke up, people died. Those issues were always addressed and always dealt with. Problems were never ignored, never. The financial problem of today is the first problem in my life which has stumped the world.

Everyone has their own way to solve problems. My way is when a problem arises, and I have seen them all, I sit down, take a breath, and pull out a pen and pad of paper. I identify the problem, brainstorm solutions, and start implementing. Why in the world would the world’s leaders not take a rational problem solving approach to the current crises?
