Considering the economic events of the last few weeks, one can't help but harken back to the end of the Bretton-Woods era and compare then to now and what was being said then compared to now. The similarity is rather amazing IMO. http://www.mises.org/journals/lf/1971/1971_09.pdf On page 1 the reaction of big business to Nixon's version of Fabian socialism is enough in itself IMO to kill all forms of Corp. welfare. Big Bidness is as wedded to the gov't teat as much if not moreso than many of the so-called welfare bums. Time to end all federal gov't interventionism in all it's forms!
