The mortgage lenders were in on it, the big investment houses were in on it, the hedgies were in on it, the rating companies were in on it, the bond insurance companies were in on it...just about anyone and everyone making millions of dollars per year for their supposed financial acumen were in on it.

You left out Halliburton and the oil companies. They must have been in on it, too. Oh, and the developers and lumber companies.
