There is much talk about how to resolve our current economic crisis, but I fear there may be some fundamental flaws in our economic ideas that are not being examined.  If this is the case, fixing the problems that result from these flaws will only mask them for the moment.   While I have my suspicions about what went wrong, there are others out there that have far more knowledge and experience so I'd like to hear others views on this.  If you reply, please do so in economic terms and refrain from finger pointing or blame.  This is not about who got us into this mess, but how we got here.
