Isn't this the same as what Bubbles Ben is doing with "Operation Twist" and the Fed printing press? Inducing people to overpay for houses, which will then be magically recouped by more people overpaying even more for those same houses, while actually he gives the $ to the crony capitalists and lemon socialists at the biggest banks?

"The plea agreement details how one investor lost $500,000 after Gallardo pressured him to invest quickly with claims that her investment program consisted of buying unfinished condominiums for pennies on the dollar in Florida and Tennessee. This victim borrowed money against his home in order to invest with Ms. Gallardo."
