regulatory capture will never stop
This is the sad denouement of the bubble saga that inspired PatNet. We had a bubble while regulators cheered the infallible "free market" awarding huge bonuses to supposedly brilliant bankers. Now we have a lemon socialist bailout while government props up prices and even higher bonuses for those same bankers. The problem isn't necessarily too much government nor too little, it's that captured government is part of the problem not the solution.
