Our Coincidental Theory of US Economics

Disclaimer: I do not have formal training in economics.

That said, please follow my line of reasoning:
  1. Alan Greenspan was head of the Fed.
  2. The Fed caused the housing bubble (see story).
  3. Trader John Paulson made $billions on subprime swaps after the drop in housing values (see story).
  4. Greenspan gets a new gig working for Paulson (see story).
Read these two new articles in their entirety and judge for yourself.

This wouldn't be the same Al Greenspan who raised the amount that FICA took out from our paycheck to build a Social Security "surplus" -- and then applauded Bush's effort of handing that surplus to benefit the highest income tax bracket?
