How familiar are you all about structured Investment Vehicles (SIV's)? SIV's and other instruments (Like ODC's) use the spread between mortgage backed assets (plus bonds) and commercial paper to create a profit, and they are demominated in the 100's of billion dollars. They are also collapsing because of the sub-prime melt-down.

Then again, one wonders if the SIVs did not drive the mortgage industry to feed it s voracious appetite!
