banks and corporations for the mess. I will give you just a simple example - Assume the government agrees to stop printing and borrowing money. A free USA consumer usually tries to get maximum out of his money and will likely buy many foreign made products. If no new money is artificially pumped into the system, the dollar value at home should rise (since USA dollar can be used aboad as reserve or oil money.) In a free economy, that should lead to dropping in domestic consumer prices and dropping in salaries (although the purchasing power of workers will be the same.) But such a scenario does not sit well with the public, trade unions, any long-term lending and mortgaging plans.
Market and free competition is exactly what affirmative-action recipients (75% of population if you count women and gays) do not want.
