睜眼說瞎話

http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/financial-crisis-bank-deregulation-myth

這篇文章也是蠻可怕的,裡面的論點跟引用皆是;一種睜眼說瞎話,或更精確的說是,睜眼只說自己想說的話,而不是完整的話。

1. 是deregulation的證據相當之多
2. 假如說不是greed,何來的security fraud、predatory lending

Alan Greenspan都承認自己對於deregulation、free market的看法錯誤

裡面提到的這句,完全可以被資料打臉
The real cause of the financial crisis was a combination of mistakes by the Federal Reserve, along with government housing policy, which was implemented by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Neither would have ever existed in a free market.

這讓我想到SOC120課上面提到的,這個若不是cognitive cpature就是regulatory capture了
