Can we put away the fairy tales of trickle down, free market capitalism and the invisible hand yet? The Fed has responded to the national and global economic crises by rewarding the richest of the rich who recklessly created the crises with trillions of taxpayer dollars (Obama has tapped many of them with appointments to his administration) and saved the "to big to fail" banks and corporations by allowing them to merge into bigger, less stable entities. In this system there is no competition or choice. There is only the accumulation of ever more wealth in ever fewer hands. Is personal greed really the highest virtue and the best guiding principle for our species?
