I was a little unimpressed.
I was troubled by his estimation that greed was somehow the reason for our difficult economic times. He admitted that market forces have an unmatched capability to provide for us but must be reigned in so that it does not spin out of control.
The market doesn't spin out of control, but fraud and force can and does. It is the role of government to protect its citizens from doing harm to each other through force and fraud. Don't blame the market because a corrupt government (of which he has been a member) does not take seriously its role to protect the right of people to engage freely and put their capital at risk. Call it greed or whatever you want but we ALL benefit when people take risks to improve their own personal well-being.
I loved the benediction...a good vision for America in my view.
What did you guys think?
