Default Greenspan speaks and my own conspiracy theory

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/18/busin...ver/index.html

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/17/inves...ars/index.html

My hunch/conspiracy side wonders if those that have benefited from the [trump tax driven] big stock buyback knew it was coming and intentionally inflated the prices ahead of that buyback.

Could this be our next crash/crisis?

Hopefully my hunch is wrong.

I clicked the thread expecting to read a conspiracy theory for why an article with a doom-and-gloomy Greenspan is coming out on 12/18. Imagine my disappoint when I open it up and the "theory" is the same tired griping about ZOMGbuybacks.
