Has there been any discussion or analysis of the connection between Mayor Bloomberg's September 16th remarks where he said that there would be "riots in the streets" if Washington did not start generating jobs, and the beginning of the Wall Street protests?

Were the billioniare's words the pebble tossed in the lake? They were widely disseminated. From the New York Times to an angling forum.
I heard them on WNYC, and remember pricking up my ears.
