5. Agree. As a fan of the liberal capitalist George Soros his remarks on unfettered capitalism

 

which he called "market fundamentalism" fits right in the OP:

"Market fundamentalists... [claim] that the common interest is best served by everybody looking out for his own interests. This claim is false... There are many political and social objectives which are not properly served by the market mechanism... These include the preservation of competition and of stability in financial markets, not to mention issues like the environment and social justice."

Soros further argues that free-market ideology threatens political democracy

(1999)

Soros was right on the mark in 1999.
