    So when we have the next financial crisis do we still get to blame the 'free market'?

    Author’s reply » Similar, I'm sure. My point was more along the lines of the corporatist nature of our government, not a narrower partisan one. The chart would be stronger with both parties represented.

    Agreed it would, but I didn't intend to highlight partisanship. I've been following your commentary for long enough now to know that it was not what you were aiming for. If you were to pick one company from this list who you feel will benefit from the govt link, which would it be?

    Author’s reply » In aggregate dollars, GE. In economic distortion, GS. In percentage of its value, MON.

    I agree, most see the corporation/govt link as one sided. My observation has been that Republicans seem to be unashamed of it, while Democrats seem to want to hide the fact.
