Barry's place has an entry from Art Cashin which memorializes 10/18/87.
It was a huge crash of the Dow; Greenspan was traveling, and when he got off the plane, an aide told him that 'Dow's down 500.' Greenspan first mis-understood, thinking that it was "5."
But when he realized what happened, he ran the printing-presses at flank speed--inserting vast sums of cash into 'the system,' which sums sloshed around to being the "dotcom" bubble, and later the "housing" bubble.
The parody-poem is pretty damn good, too!
