How the financial collapse killed libertarianism. - By Jacob Weisberg - Slate Magazine This guy is fundamentally wrong about pretty much everything he talks about. He doesn't mention the Federal Reserve inflating the currency, doesn't mention how much we're spending per month on our overseas empire, and doesn't mention our national debt as causes of this crisis. He also neglects to mention that it was Libertarian's and Austrian economists who correctly identified this crisis years before it even happened. This crisis should have been vindication for Libertarian's and the free market, but too many people are believing the government's rhetoric about a "lack of regulation."
