Something's going on over at The Washington Post. First, they publish an article entitled "Don't Blame Capitalism". Now there's an unsigned editorial affirming that the "unregulated free-for-all financial sector" wasn't free. This represents a different tack from the one taken earlier.
I'm not going to go crazy and get all hopeful about this turn, but I am glad that the editors at WaPo are willing to acknowledge the government's role in both catalyzing and aggravating this financial problem.
