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'.
