You shall not charge interest on loans to your brother, interest on money, interest on food, interest on anything that is lent for interest. You may charge a foreigner interest, but you may not charge your brother interest, that the Lord your God may bless you in all that you undertake in the land that you are entering to take possession of it. – Deuteronomy 23:19-20
Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws. –Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the House of Rothschild.
