Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I claim it is to save capitalism and the investor class that funds both political parties.

That's about right. You capture the political power angle...and also, let's not forget that much of the investor class is, currently, wiped out on paper. Convert that to real loss of economic power, and not just they, but their future trust fund benificiaries, are denied the right to perpetuate, generation to generqtion, that power.
