“The main tools of modern finance are mystification, obfuscation and hypnosis. The great mystery of money, to most people, is the sacrament of money creation. The high priest pushes a button and, ex-nihilo and seemingly effortlessly, generates more of that which we all want to have more of. This is indeed an impressive trick: what we struggle to earn by the sweat of our brow, the high priest blithely summons into existence with the help of a cryptic incantation. It is more advanced than a shaman’s rain dance and far more reliable – to a point. Obfuscation comes from the use of mathematical formulate that few people understand. Even fewer understand their implications and how they (persistently fail to) map onto the physical world. The key formula of finance – debt raised to the power of time – is the ticking time bomb inside all of our modern financial arrangements.”

From 1942-1944 transport trains delivered Jews, Romani, people with disabilities, Soviet war prisoners, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses and other political and religious opponents to “forced labor camps”.
