It depicts one possibility of how easy it is to get caught up and in over your head on something, that eventually turns into such a monster that there is no way out.
The other answer is quite simply greed. The worlds fuel is greed, so I don't think it is hard to imagine that when someone sees an opportunity to game/cheat/con the system, they take it. It isn't the janitor stealing to go sell stuff on ebay to pay the electric bill or put food on the table.
I remember an old study that showed that most employees that steal from their employer are white collar managers or "higher ups" in the organization. They steal because they feel like they deserve more than what they are being given, so they take it.
You can look at a successful trader and their lavish lifestyle, and it may be hard to imagine they could "want" for anything. Funny how greed works. Greed is not a desire to pay the bills, but a desire to have more than everyone else.

Wall Street was one of the best movies made with regards to the investment world. It motivated me to go into the Biz right after college and work on the Street.
