The blame-game (1)

To blame laissez faire for today's economic crisis is akin to blaming the human body's natural and normal functioning for the illness suffered by someone who's overdosing on heroin.
That is Don Boudreaux.

Update: Also from the same person:
Saying that "greed" caused today's problems is like saying that gravity caused the death of someone pushed from the top floor of the Empire State building.
