Just watched "The Short". 2007-8 was free and unregulated.

 

I have no idea what "The Short" means but if it said we had an unregulated economy 2007-8, it is a fraud.

    The construct:  free-market capitalism is a construct that has been so degraded that saying that is a model in the developed world is based on ignorance or deceipt.

 

O.K. - so the system is broken and needs to be fixed. I agree.

 

The question then is where do we go from here? Do we give up on the ideal system of a freemarket system which has it's freedom assured via cooperation with the government or do we turn the economy over to government bureaucrats?

No surprise there Kidboy, but are you sure that you know that it means?

================================================

Yes I do. What do you think it means?

KidBoy, you saying "yes I do", instead of explaining, is the same thing as saying "no I don't".  Thanks for clearing that up.

    The construct:  free-market capitalism is a construct that has been so degraded that saying that is a model in the developed world is based on ignorance or deceipt.  

 

      It is the tax code, you know regulation=laws, that have been so bastardized that the ubber wealthy are in total control and sit on their high thrones and make really stupid statements that show they are disconnected from reality.  

 

     For example:   Coal companies run through a cycle of going through bankruptcy and via the legal construct strip the employees of all the retirement funds.    How is that good for the actual workers? Meanwhile the management of the company receive millions of dollars in salary and benefits as they give themselves a huge salary while unwinding the corporations.
