And I can't really offer opinions on the doc, because I tried watching it once and I thought it was horrible and turned it off. A lot of misleading comments, cherry-picked numbers, etc. Feel free to bring up specific parts of the video, I would be happy to respond.
We've never been close to a free market in a LONG time, and the 60s were probably the last decade before economic policy just got ridiculous. The times you referenced to were a time when we were still on the Bretton Woods system or not too far from it, and the Fed was still somewhat bound by how much it could expand the monetary base.
