Blundering Off

Today’s economic mess in America is primarily the result of blundering off in the direction of neo-conservative economic theory for many years.  This period of blundering was followed by eight years of practicing this economic theory, which seems to primarily suggest that markets are the absolute solution for all known problems.  This of course actually depends on the players in this economic game agreeing to a set of rules which protect all player value, assets, positions, and interests.  This presents a conundrum because neo-conservative theory asserts that rules and regulations (aka government) are inherently bad, and thus un-needed.  Once the actual practicing of the theory began, no ones values, assets, positions, or interests were protected, because the rule required for their mutual protection were gone.
