“Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the
Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits,
and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back
again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will
disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier
and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the
Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to
create deposits.” Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the

George Louis says:

Is a mortgage for land only or is it for houses to? That’s not a very
intelligent way of asking what I’m trying to ask. I’m trying to figure out
if it’s cheaper to build my own house.

Jonny RootsDem says:

I find it funny you can get a loan secured by something you don’t yet own.


that would depend if the loan is on a reducing basis or a flat basis. If it
is reducing, the interest would be calculated on the remaining principal
and if it is a flat rate, the interest would be calculated on the original
principal. If your banker quotes you a very low flat rate, be aware that
you will continue to pay a higher interest through out the term of the
facility unlike loans on reducing rates.

Snir Bitton says:
