The Fed was the facilitator, but your mythical 'free-market' was
damaged far more by the opportunist crooks that jumped in and traded
garbage all round the world, snagging millions in commissions and
bonuses until the house of cards collapsed.

So laissez-faire was a great deal for financial crooks. The rest of
the US lost their jobs and houses.

Great deal if you work in the finance industry.
