Hey, Why the Right-Wing Silence?

It's amazing we've not heard from free-market gurus such as the Business Roundtable's Roger Kerr and ACT's Rodney Hide and Sir Roger Douglas -- to name a few -- condemning the socialist approach by United States President George W Bush to bail out the US financial sector. Surely the bailout -- maybe, nationalisation is a more suitable term -- is anathema to capitalism and yet not a word from these men.

Perhaps, in future, democratic capitalism might not be so dominated by "free'' market dogma.
