Interesting correlation. Impulsiveness and a lack of conscientiousness are attributed to the gene mutation in question, and therefor it is hypothesized that those who carry the mutation will indulge in more high-cost borrowing.

I personally hypothesize that the same mutation may be found commonly amongst those lenders who partake in high-risk lending.
