    It is so very instructive to look at the boom bust cycle the country was victim to before there was comprehensive regulation on the corps.

    Then look at what we got after the GD and decent regulation of the idustries.

    How can anyone sing the cause of unfettered markets in the light of history and facts.

    Yeap we have had quite a few and we had one every couple of years for a long time.

    There is a chart of them in this article and for a time we had one every couple of years and we would lose 15 to 30+ percent of our commerse right up until the GD. Then after the Glass Steagal act we had shallow ones in small single digits instead.

    Right up until that law was gone, then poof we get a real corker.
