The U.S.hasn't had "free market economics" since the progressives got the Progressive Income Tax and the Federal Reserve central banks put in place. So, for about 100 years we've been sinking into the slime of progressive socialism. Yet today free market economics, which we don't have, is called capitalism ( the term being applied by Karl Marx himself ) and demagoged by the very ones who created our current mess. They say " see capitalism doesn't work any more". It hasn't been for 100 years!
