Surprise, It Was Greenspan and Bernanke's Fault
What, Bernanke worry?
The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission is about to tell us, in 576 pages, what many of us already know:

Bernanke, who did not foresee the crisis but played a crucial role in the response. It criticizes Mr. Greenspan for advocating deregulation and cites a “pivotal failure to stem the flow of toxic mortgages” under his leadership as a “prime example” of negligence.
