To Daniel Crewe
From Naim Dangoor
Your faultless article in The Times of Rivers of
Babylon exhibition at the Jewish Museum in which you
mentioned my family, prompts me to invite you to cover
my burning idea of an interest-free monitory system.
Lending without charging interest was first thought
of by Moses but could not be implemented for the past
3,300 years. Paper money has made the idea workable.
This has made it possible to declare that promissory
money (I promise to pay the bearer £10) is an
I.O.U. that should be issued in the name of the borrower
and not in the name of the lender or the central bank.
Please see my various articles on this subject in
The Scribe, Journal of Babylonian Jewry. Our website
I would be happy to discuss the matter further with
