"The Crisis, the Bailout, and the Stimulus:
Why Government is the Problem"
Most commentators blame the financial crisis on Wall
Street greed, rating agency failures, and insufficient regulation.
Further, they assume only government can fix the mess.
In fact, misguided government polices produced the crisis,
and the Treasury bailout did little to help.
Rather than bailing out banks, the U.S. should have let
failure and bankruptcy run their course.
The stimulus package assembled by the Obama
administration is ill-conceived and will generate huge costs
for decades.
