    true......... but by the same extension, every problem is caused by humans. no government = those with the most resources will rule over everyone else.
    im actually for anarchy. its just that humans are evil. so it probably wouldnt work.

    The government needs to intervene in certain cases and regulate businesses etc.
    There needs to be tax to fund public goods and healthcare.
    Whilst I am for small government , the government is still required to act and intervene. A 100% free market economy works as well as communism!

    I am sure you are rich enough to buy police protection? And you don't use public roads either? You would be happy to use potentially dangerous goods without safety standards put in place by a government?

    No I support a freer market , not an entire free market as that would never work you moron. Just like communism would never work! There needs to be a government however I believe it should be small.

    Very sweeping conclusion. Economic problems, like with any problem, is not as simplistic as you may think and is very, very complex. Even though, this statement may be a factor, it is not the only factor. So, you simply cannot state that economic problems is caused by government, with no evidence to back you up.

    Ok then - what about the sub-prime lending market that lead to stock markets falling across the world, banks brought to their knees and recession throughout the world?

    How was that the fault of the government Mr Privatise Everything?

    You anti-aspirational, jealous, feckless, metropolitan liberal elite socialist.

    Acknowledging in anyway that the state should provide any services to its citizens makes you a Stalin supporting communist who hates ambition.

    Actually governments around the world were encouraging banks to throw credit at people so there's a fair case to be made.

    Here in the UK there's an even bigger case to be made post-Great Recession because in the 2010-2012 period banks had learnt their lesson and mortgage lending fell to levels last seen in the late 70's, house prices stalled and for the first time in decades we saw affordability start to increase during a time of economic growth (even if weak).

    The governments response to the above was to make it practically mandatory for the banks to join their credit schemes and then Help To Buy gave a taxpayer guarantee to those banks who lent.

    ...

    The consumer and private sector were still at fault but government is too. It just can't keep its grubby hands out.

    Sadly true. Idiocy and electoral pandering is a very contagious thing.
