While reading an issue of MoneySense, the last page had a review of 5 recent DVD releases concerning the current state of capitalism, including Michael Moore’s new movie “Capitalism: A Love Story”.  Capitalism is certainly taking a hit right now, and maybe the lack of regulation has definitely caused some problems.  But I don’t think Communism is the answer, and I don’t think hardcore Libertarianism would really work either.  Some sort of free market economy with government regulations seem to be the answer. 

But what should that mix really be?  That is the eternal question all the nations of the world really face.  And it brings up a different phrasing of the question:  What is the role of government?  

…and that, my friends, is a question for another whole blog post (one that will take much time)!
