It is patience that is lacking because government only reacts to the "We must do something, this is something, therefore we must do it" tyranny.
Well, not necessarily. Patience is difficult because no one can predict the durations of economic problems, as well as the fact that (as Keynes said) in the long run, we are all dead. We should wait this long? This also does not address the fact that it has never been proven that time actually "fixes" all or even most economic problems. Nor that efficiency (which is about all capitalism promises) is not the only goal of an economic system.
