Why Does Romney Keep Going on About the Jews and Their Special Capacity to Make Money?

Mitt Romney is still trying to clean up after himself for several "gaffes" made during his overseas tour. The one that seems most troubling, as reported here at The Guardian,  is his claim that the differences in economic performance between Israel and Palestine come down to the Jews and their "culture." Romney has repeated the claim upon arrival back in the U.S.. Most reporting on the matter focuses on rightful Palestinian outrage at Romney's apparent amnesia regarding the occupation and its obvious burdens on the Palestinians and their economy. But what I find stunning is that Romney is basically pointing to the Jews and remarking on their special money-making prowess. Where have I heard that sort of line before?
