There are so many sides and reasons why the finacial system collapsed,we may not be able to pin it down for quite some time but we do have the usual suspects. So many people had a hand in this from the top even down to the anxious prospective home buyers and the over confidence of lenders.But we all have had to live with the results..now to learn from it.

Good catch. This is probably the most important bit of revisionist history the GOP is presently engaged in, because the financial crisis is such a clear and compelling case study of the failure of the GOP dogma of deregulation and ‘free markets uber alles’.

AFter my 3 months of research into the reasons for Dodd-Frank leglislation it was very clear that the sources on the right had one reason for the crisis: government legislation. What also became apparent is that they totally ignored the the 3 decade degradation of Glass-Steagall and the lack of regulation on derivative products.

Seemed like a strange gap in the thought process to me… .

and they are still spouting the “regulation” dogma.

Of course. Dogma is eternal truth. Facts and reality are completely irrelevant.
