    This is about the recycling of the Petro dollars.

    Its basically a cycle. When oil prices rise, the Arabs get rich.

    They have nowhere else to park their money other than the big investment banks and hedge funds knocking on their door.

    This banks and HF then need to invest this HUGE some of money into something.. bulk of it goes into mortgage finance.

    Desperate Banks and HF then invests ''other peoples money'' into any scheme which can generate more money. They care little about the risk, so, retail banks pressure ordinary guys into getting their mortgage refinanced, etc.

    When the credit markets got hit with defaults-naturally, the Arabs cash gets screwed.
