Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
During the bubble (and during the early bust, when people still believe that happy times can come again if just the "organised support" - read: Large-scale manipulation - arrives in time), people do not mind manipulations, as long as they think they have a chance to get in on the action.

Galbraith has (as usual) a couple of pithy quotes about that, but my copy of The Great Crash of 1929 is at a friend's house right now...
