I am also aware that the antics sell newpapers and tv ads.

And frankly, economics is WAY too much like astrology for my taste. Especially the kind that says completely free markets would solve all our problems and hold no peril whatsoever. Don't buy that for a minute. I can see the negatives of over regulation etc., but don't trust people not to abuse ANY system, and don't see any way totally free markets wouldn't result in corporate feudalism.
