Don't know why I'm even posting this because I feel like we have had this convo a dozen times before.

Because it's fun to disagree and debate, aye?

You're missing my initial point. You can't blame the private, capitalist financial industry, because we didn't have a private, capitalist financial industry. Our economic problems were caused by government, and George Bush's reputation of being a "free market guy" has masked that fact.

Makes no sense to me whatsoever.

What do you mean by trickle down economics? That word is so overused it's sort of an empty vase at this point.
