The Washington-Wall Street Kabuki Dance. The Freeman | Ideas On Liberty (2010-04-23). Excellent work in the latest from Sheldon Richman: "When I watch the public furor over the ruling party’s attempt to 'toughen' regulations on the financial industry, I get the same feeling I often have in a theater: Good show but it’s not real. ... If you have doubts about any of this, imagine some top Wall Street operator calling for elimination of the Federal Reserve System and the banking cartel it administers. Imagine him endorsing repeal of all federal and state banking regulations and their replacement with free banking and market-based money. Imagine him testifying on behalf of an end to all implicit guarantees, bailout promises, and the “too big to fail” doctrine. If you can’t imagine it you have begun to grasp the nature of the actual political economy in which we live." Sheldon's column has also been reprinted in this weekend's CounterPunch. (Congrats!)
