Which of course means you and I are left holding the bag as taxpayers --- forced to bail wealthy irresponsible lenders out so they don't lose their McMansions and McYachts. The "free" market, ain't it wonderful? Free of care because when "capitalism" fails, socialism is there to force you to bail it out. Free from responsibility or market controls, but full of government regulations and controls.
