    there is no free market, just socialism for the rich, capitalism for the rest. The American market fundamentalists pushed a purely theoretical version of a supposedly free market on the Russia emerging from the USSR, one they had never tried themselves in their long history. The result was oligarchs and massive looting of state assets. The free market allows 90cents of every dollar in the Timber industry to be taxpayer subsidies. It allows national assets in Minerals to be bought per acre for the price of a cheeseburger. When Wall street made money it was theirs, when they lost money the debt was ours. Time to slay this myth once and for all.
