Lending more money to the people than is justified by the real wealth of a nation is socially immoral.

Fraser in 2008.

QUESTION:And what do you think of usury? ANSWER: What do you think of murder?
Cato in De Re Rustica (234BC).

Side Note: Usury or Riba is still forbidden in Islamic economic jurisprudence. [Despite charging interest on loans being forbidden under Islamic law, all devout Muslim bankers have many ways of acquiring 'interest' on loans without apparently offending their religious principles. It seems that bankers are the same the world over, regardless of their religious persuasion]
