moneylending

How is it, Abbé Boulah,  that in this God-fearing (or so they say) nation that reveres the Good Book in which the  practice of money-lending at interest is denounced in numerous verses –(though the better-sounding advice  “neither a lender nor a borrower be!” is from Shakespeare ) the notion that without a vigorous system of credit  the entire country will go to the dogs — is  so blindly believed by all political parties that its government abandons within one single week its hallowed doctrine of capitalism and adopts a  scheme of  taxpayer bailout of the foolish lenders who ran the largest lending institutions into bankruptcy?

Oh my friend Bog-Hubert:  It is indeed fascinating. A miracle.  But I am not sure anymore that all miracles are good…
