How much money - cash - does the House of Saud hold?

Even with hundreds of princes and princelings spending it like... well... like a Saudi Royal spends cash, it's going to take longer than that to deplete their reserves.

And between now and then, maybe they install 100 sq miles of solar panels, and an electric "pipeline", and provide the entire Middle East with power for pennies.

I dunno. I expect they have a very deep reserve, and it will take some time to deplete it.
