Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In addition to allowing the hands of 'their guys' on the money, it also ties the future pensions of the working/middle class to the financial markets. This is very useful in times of busts, when lucrative bailouts of high-power investors also benefits (to a much smaller degree) 'ordinary' people. The better to make more entities that are 'to big to fail'.
