I dare suggest

that your friend wouldn't know a "free market" from a hole in the ground. The United States has nothing close to a free market. What you are witnessing is a market completely controlled by the government, the Non federal reserve, and huge corporations. Truly free markets do not have bailouts for banks and insurance companies who make bad bets, give subsidies for growing or not growing certain crops, and they certainly don't bail out huge car companies because they refuse to change their business models to fit the changing times. You are witnessing the ugly truth behind the neo Amerikan fascist state, where government and business are married, while the citizens are simply considered the red headed stepchildren. (No offense to red headed step children)
