Endless Intervention?

November 2008
National Review;11/17/2008, Vol. 60 Issue 21, p18
The author discusses the 2008 financial crisis in the U.S. and around the world and argues that although it was necessary for the U.S. government to intervene and give money to the banking sector, it must not interfere with the banks in how they use the money. Government officials have more power than ever, and must not increase their power by telling banks what to do.
