My analysis has been that the Great Financial Collapse was caused by a combination of government policy and bad investment decisions, in roughly equal proportions. Now it seems the government had a much larger role than was generally recognized. More detail is here. Maybe before we expand the reach of government even further, we should look back and trim back (hack back) government’s role where it has already caused so much damage. If you like what government did to the banks and homeowners, you’ll love what it will do with doctors and hospitals!
