Reviews

“Powerful usury, ill-defined and therefore misunderstood, can only, and does, appear as a deuteragonist, if at all, in books on monetary matters. But if correctly defined, as by Gesell in the ‘Natural Economic Order’, it stands out as the protagonist in the saga of the only empire that has lasted, pervasively in the background, through 40 centuries of history: Mammon’s.”
