There was also not much attention paid to the concerted RW effort to regain

control of the government that began in the early 70s. The pouring of huge amounts of money into think tanks that promote conservative / free market ideololgy, creation of business associations that lobby government, i.e. ALEC and the effort to elect/appoint "business friendly" judges to the bench. "Free trade", de-regulation and privatization are the biggest economic results, as well as the out and out assault on organized labor. The economy we live under may have some hidden hands but most of it isn't hidden. The economy doesn't happen in a vaccum. And finally, the buying (corrupting) of the political system with campaign contributions.
