The flaw is that we abandoned capitalism for a state ran economy.

Next issue?

The libertarian, Ayn Rand and Milton Friedman free market acolyte Alan Greenspan had a chance to make that point, and did not. Of course, he was under oath, so perhaps didn't want to lie about these things. Others are not under such constraints.

As we all know, Alan Greenspan instead blamed the markets, and in particular, his own assumptions that market actors could be relied upon to do the right thing for everybody out of self interest and keeping the market itself sound. He admitted he was wrong, and that market forces failed to act according to what his ideology said they would. Ate that crow in televised hearings, as you may have seen.

The particular actions of the government involved were taking off regulations, or refusing to impose regulations as in the near-quadrillion dollar sized derivatives market.

State AGs wanted to stop predatory loan practices using state law-- they were stopped from enforcing state law by the Comptroller of the Currency stepping in and forbidding it.

Are you claiming that the US Federal Reserve is a capitalist entity in favor of free markets?

Since you already know (from your first reply) can we all presume you are now playing stupid? Here's a clue, next time you're at Walmart buy an "L" then stick it to your forehead. It will come in handy when reading typos like oser, bink, midde, and coset. Oh what fun you will have with your new found literacy! St.

Oops ... I forgot, you have no mind of your own.
