Bailout: A bailout is a colloquial term for giving financial support to a company or country which faces serious financial difficulty or bankruptcy. It may also be used to allow a failing entity to fail gracefully without spreading contagion. A bailout can, but does not necessarily, avoid an insolvency process. In the United States, Chapter 11, Title 11, United States Code governs insolvencies, which fall under Chapter 11, for businesses, Chapter 13, for humans, and Chapter 9, for municipalities.
