As Martin Armstrong (www.armstrongeconomics.com) once said (paraphrasing): "Man is insolent enough to think he can design intelligent system to control free markets. But the free market will ALWAYS have the last word. We can either go there voluntarily, or we can go there kicking and screaming". We may go through Fascism and Communism (that's us kicking and screaming), but we will end with Free markets (assuming we don't destroy the planet in the process).
So, he's essentially right that the market will have the last word, but unfortunately you are correct as well. We're choosing the harder path to get there.
