Alan Greenspan theorized a housing bubble. Did he deliberately cause it, resulting in the destruction of the U.S. economy?
“In 1977, Greenspan obtained a PhD degree in economics from New York University. His dissertation is not available from the university since it was removed at Greenspan’s request in 1987, when he became Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. However, in April 2008, Barron’s obtained a copy, and notes that it includes “a discussion of soaring housing prices and their effect on consumer spending; it even anticipates a bursting housing bubble”.” – Wikipedia
