Calling the US a free market is not correct until the FED. is able to 
decree the quantity of money available, who will receive it and how much 
it will cost to him.
Money is needed in any minimally complex free market, but when the money 
is controlled by the government and have not material value, the market 
is not free. Unfortunately, the government is not able in any way to 
manage any minimally complex economy. So, as usual, its meddling will 
only cause damages.

You can stick the label "free market" to the cause of the current mess, 
but it is like telling that "oppression" is the cause of the islamic 
terrorism. Unfortunately, for a Muslim, "oppression" is the existence of 
people that don't want become Muslims, don't want Muslims to rule them 
and don't want move from where they are to let Muslims to take their 
place and the fruits of their work.
