You find it kinda funny. I find it kinda sad.

You're conflating two things. Governments can't do anything economically, because their purpose is to oppose freedom, which economic efficiency depends upon.
Their ability to deceive, defraud, and coerce, however are the exact tools they use to accomplish opposing freedom. They are relatively good at this, as deception, fraud, and coercion is their entire raison d'être.
