I'm sympathetic to Warren's criticism, and yet two things are true when it comes to the investor response to the housing bust: It did represent a transfer of wealth from stressed homeowners to the wealthy, contributing to inequality, but it also stabilized the housing market and local economies at a time when there were no other buyers.
