    I’m just curious why a libertarian is criticizing the adminstration with not doing more to stem the financial crisis. i mean, isn’t treasury’s cautious path exactly what a fan of limited goverment would like to see?

    I’m not being snarky here; as someone who increasingly buys into the libertarian critique of the state (though not always buying into into some of the magical thinking about the efficiacy of the “free’ market), I have some sympathy for the POV that the administration should be particularly cautious about further interventions into the mess. But whether from convinction or circumstance, isn’t that just what the adminstration has been doing?
