IMPORTANTE RETOMAR LOS ANTECEDENTES HISTÓRICOS.POR FAVOR LEE ÉSTE Y POSTERIORMENTE ABRE EL ARCHIVO.
Desde 1913 Estados Unidos ya no es un país capitalista. En ese año y aprovechando un receso legislativo, los Morgan, Rockefeller, Pulitzer y Rothchild engendraron la Fed, el mayor enemigo de la libertad y la ética en los EEUU. Para ironía del destino, el encuentro fue en la Isla de Jekyll. Antes de eso, el bando Jeffersoniano había resistido tajantemente los avances de los Hamiltonianos hacia la consolidación de un Estado central poderoso, subsidios para los ricos y devaluaciones para favorecer a los exportadores. Pero en ese año, el sistema de socialismo monetario logró status legal. En vez de corridas ("pánicos" bancarios) cada 30 años promedio, con el sistema de free banking, ahora el riesgo moral se distribuía a todo el sistema, se alentaban los préstamos de baja calidad y sobre todo se saqueaba a las grandes mayorías via inflación. La Gran Depresión fue su primer resultado, pues el M2 (circulante + depósitos y ahorros en el sistema) fue artificialmente aumentado por la Fed durante los irresponsables 1920's. A ese boom artificial le correspondía una quiebra masiva de inversiones sin ahorro real previo para financiarlas. Y para colmo, Hoover y Roosevelt no dejaron al mercado liquidar esas malas inversiones, sino que corrieron a intervenirlo (más Estado, menos mercado) para provocar que durara finalmente toda la década de los 1930's. La actual crisis tiene sus raices en la Fed y el afán voluntarista de "masificar la vivienda" por vias nada éticas. Baste saber que un centavo de 1913 compra ahora lo mismo que un dólar, un 99% de su valor perdido a costa de las clases medias. Esto financia booms artificiales de las punto-com, de la vivienda, invasiones a Irak y salvatajes a aerolíneas, bancos y corporaciones con suficiente peso político.
En 1913 también, el mismo grupo de magnates hizo aprobar el Impuesto a la Renta, que los tontos utiles siempre han creido una medida redistributiva. En realidad sí redistribuye: le quita a la gente emprendedora o profesional que lo quiere ser, para darles a las élites financieras de todos los paises que lucran de préstamos al gobierno y otros medios fiduciarios. El que dude de esto, sólo tiene que averiguar cuánto de cada dólar llega al supuesto beneficiario de todo lo "gratis" que nos ofrece el Estado. En las ONGs más efectivas se habla de tal vez $10 usd por cada $100 recibidos de donaciones, según un estudio multisectorial para la ONU, del 2006. ¿Cuánto logrará en eficiencia el Estado? Probablemente más, por temas de infraestructura y logística, pero no mucho más. El resto le da trabajo a toda una casta burocrática intocable. Entonces la redistribución es de los muchos sin conexiones, a los pocos bien conectados y apalancados en el sistema. Y a pesar de este retorno del feudalismo via impuestos (recordemos que el medioevo, la servidumbre se definía por un 30% de impuesto al señor feudal), en los últimos 25 años salió más gente de la pobreza en el planeta que en los últimos 400 años. La distribución del mercado masifica calidad de vida, la redistribución estatal corrompe a las sociedades de múltiples maneras.
Si 1913 marcó el inicio de dos instituciones totalmente anticapitalistas como son la banca central y el impuesto a la renta. Hasta no ser eliminadas, no se puede hablar de capitalismo ni culparle por crisis como la actual. El capitalismo puede parecerle a ud. más o menos bueno o malo, pero no se le debe culpar de lo que no maneja. Desde el golpe de Estado (y nos siguen golpeando bajo), los culpables son un puñado de plutócratas y los tontos útiles que venden su alma por una falsa estabilidad y una contraproducente redistribución en nombre de la justicial social.

City Controller Wendy Greuel said that community college district officials were “taking to heart what the auditor found, and wanted to have an independent look at the process to make sure it was appropriate.” (Al Seib / Los Angeles Times / July 27, 2011)
Los Angeles Times
In a recent audit of the $5.7-billion program, state Controller John Chiang's office cited "possible malfeasance" in the district's hiring of Christine E. Marez as inspector general and urged an independent investigation.
Marez's newly formed company, Policy Masters Inc., was chosen last year over higher-rated applicants, even though she had no experience as an independent auditor or investigator.
From 1998 to 2003, Marez worked for a construction management firm owned by Art Gastelum, a leading campaign donor and fundraiser for the district's elected board members and a major contractor on the construction program.
Chancellor Daniel LaVista, who had recommended Marez's hiring to the board, initially rejected Chiang's call for an outside investigation. But board President Miguel Santiago announced Wednesday that Greuel would conduct an independent review.
Santiago promised to refer any evidence of criminal conduct to the district attorney's office.
Greuel said in an interview that district officials were "taking to heart what the auditor found, and wanted to have an independent look at the process to make sure it was appropriate."
The board also adopted a resolution directing LaVista to take corrective measures recommended by state auditors, including developing a construction master plan and written requirements for evaluating bidders. The resolution also called for an analysis of the district's renewable energy program to determine whether it will produce net savings.
Regarding the inspector general's hiring, state auditors found that an initial selection committee scored Marez's proposal second to last among 11 submitted. The district's bidding rules required that the contract to go to the highest scorer, auditors said. A second selection committee recommended Marez's firm as "far and away the best" applicant.
LaVista maintains that the auditors' findings were based on incorrect information and that Marez was ranked in the top tier in the first round. LaVista said Wednesday that state auditors were returning this week to question him on the issue.
Marez said she welcomed Greuel's review. She also defended her qualifications and called the state audit "seriously flawed in many respects."
"The company I created, Policy Masters, and the staff I have built have all of the requisite skills, experience, talent and commitment to create an exceptional office of inspector general for the district," she said. "And that is what we have done."
A citizen's group, the Van de Kamps Coalition, has asked Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley to open a criminal inquiry into Marez's hiring. An official in Cooley's public integrity unit said prosecutors had not yet reviewed the request but that Greuel's investigation would not rule out a separate criminal inquiry by the district attorney.
