better question to ask…

Is nationalization of banks undesirable?

Would that be an act of socialism or fascism?

If the gov’t owned them, i would say socialism.

With the amount of regulation we are piling up, minimum wage laws, and price fixing, one could argue we have been approaching fascism for some time now.

The Swedish Model approach does seem promising.
