Recent events in the USA indicate that the type of Capitalism practiced there in the last few years has ended. The idea of little or no regulations, that the market will look after the economy, that greed is good and prosperity will trickle down to the poor have all proved to be wrong. The USA government has nationalizes several companies, forced others to merge and wanting one of its most powerful banks to be propped up by a Communist Chinese sovereign wealth fund. It has introduce regulations to the banking and insurance companies. It has banned such functions as future trading and now is preparing to take all the debts of these companies to avoid recession. Surely if this is not a socialist solution it does mean the end of the unrestrained capitalist solution and a movement towards a mixed economy.
