Look at Greenspan’s testimony trying to enplane why he believed markets are self regulating. Every school boy knows of depressions caused by asset bubbles. It is also well know people buy assets when prices are going up and dump when they are going down. Which is instability. Things that one buys to use up are gotten when prices are down.

That means they will appoint weak regulators. In the documentary “Flaw”, Greenspan tried to enplane to senators why pushed the idea asset markets self regulating and stable. This in spite of the fact every school boy knows about depressions due to asset bubbles and old time robber barons (the present ones will become visible in time). Also it well known assets (unlike goods that get used up) are only attractive when their price is going up fast and hard to sell when the price going down. That by itself would create bubbles.

That means Greenspan was a fool or on some sort of take or political pressure. Many of those in congress grilling finance CEOs pushed easy loan policies and deregulation before the 2008 crash.

Following that, catching the big-fish in the same lines should prove easy.

Better get used to that because there will almost certainly be less money in the future.
