...'cept the oil industry didn't bother shipping fuel around. They just swapped around bits of paper claiming ownership of quantities of oil.

So that's where the bankers learned the hypothecation/re-hypothecation/re-re-re-re-hypothecation, CDS and derivatives games: they merely copied the oil industry.
