California’s electricity market “deregulation” (subsequently and shamelessly exploited by Enron et al) would have provided a good, third example.

Whores don't subsidize bad ideas.  To the extent that your analogy applies here, Wall St. is the whore (satisfying demand and doing what whores do), the government is the pimp and the public are the Johns who have traded a short term "fix" for empty pockets and a nasty disease.
