This is clearly incorrect. The fact banks offered large financial incentives to their employees encouraged excessive risk taking and prioritisation of short-term results over long-term stability. This was a major factor behind the crash, and has thus effected every single one of us.
You seem to be suggesting we each live in an isolated bubble, when in reality the economy is interconnected in many different ways.
