In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, Mr. Paul Volker, former chairman of the Federal Reserve and a close advisor to President Obama, was asked about the administration’s plan to deal with the crisis.

The answer to both questions is “NO.” I do not believe that the free market system can be saved, unless it returns to its capitalist roots and becomes fair and socially responsible.
