Has it evolved to include these influences or have the politicians tried
to harness the economy for their own purposes. Look at the plethora of
income redistribution programs imposed by politicians. Communism failed
because they would not allow winners (profit) will the welfare state be
able to protect losers with borrowed money indefinitely?

The attempt of goevernment to interfere with the economy has created a
dependent class which will suffer much more now if the benefits are
withdrawn suddenly (due to currency crisis becase of the debt) than if
they had been self reliant from the beginning. I think that the economy
will become radically different within the next ten years and there will
be a dramatic restructuring of government. Even countries go bankrupt
