As correctly pointed out, these problems were all created by government actions. Redlining was described as if it was bad. The problems was the government banned it for "social justice". Then it required banks to make loans and insurance companies to write policies in these areas if they wanted to keep their charters. Disaster ensued. It's hard to commit insurance fraud if you don't have insurance. In the 1980's Bill Clinton and his Secretary of Housing (a certain Mr. Cuomo) created another housing loan scandal again (only without the arson) nationwide at great cost to the taxpayers.
