Exactly. Manipulating interests rates, making them too low, is also price fixing. Price controls from a central bank covers two planks of socialism. While it is true there was greed unleashed, created by perverse incentives, it was done for housing socialism. Funny how the richies connected to govt power get richer, while the left cries for more of the same.
