You've got the rhetoric down well: list only the negatives of government, list only the positives of private business.
Hold on. Let me demonstrate. Notable points will be in ALL CAPS.
You'll overlook private market greed giving birth to companies like Enron, who systematically decreased electricity supply to sections of California to fake a lack of supply, thus allowing them to jack electricity prices and tack on obscene service charges to fix problems that never existed. The free market did that.
Paid for by the CALIFORNIAN GOVERNMENT, Enron was NOT CAUGHT BY GOVERNMENT REGULATORS WHO REGULARLY TAKE MONEY WITH THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF STOPPING THIS, but by a PRIVATE SECTOR TRADER WHO SHORT SOLD THEM AND RESULTED IN THEIR EXPOSURE. If you seriously think California has a free energy industry because it pays specific companies to do its dirty work, then you are high.
You'll forget about all the factory farms that cut corners on cleanliness and pest control, action that has led to numerous e.coli and salmonela outbreaks in the last few years. That's the free market's standard of food safety.
How is the FDA working out for you? Doesn't sound like a free market to me.
Let's just ignore tobacco companies that knew the negative affects of their products as early as the 1930's, but continued to market them as perfectly safe until government regulation cracked down on them over thirty years later.
We already know tobacco is dangerous. If people want to smoke, then that is no one else's damn business. The government is not a mother.
So easily you forget AIG that sidestepped and mislead regulators about the finanical instruments they had created, of course, out of greed, and brought world-wide financial system collapse - because they only cared about themselves and making a quick buck.
You are right: AIG is crooked! But wait! AIG was receiving SUPPORT FROM GOVERNMENT AGENCIES IN THE FORM OF INCENTIVES AS WELL AS EASY CREDIT FROM THE AMERICAN CENTRAL BANK, THE FEDERAL RESERVE. Then, after failing (as they rightly should have and would have in a free market), they RECEIVED A TAXPAYER PROVIDED BAILOUT THAT REMOVED MORAL HAZARD.
And oh, all the Chinese companies using lead paint in toys. Forget about them, they don't matter. That's the free market saving a buck at the expense of the populace. That didn't stop until government regulators put an end to it.
We all know Communist China has a free market, don't we? Oh wait, they have a corporatist system which protects Chinese companies from prosecution. Whoops.
It looks to me like you are exposing the flaws of corporatism and the failure of government regulation, not any particular problems with the free market.
