Item description for Dollar Noncents by Peter Allison...
I bet you thought that . Banks pay out loans from the money they receive as deposits. That economic experts know what money is. That the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 is largely irrelevant to your life in the 21st century. But did you know that . Bank loans increase deposits by creating money. The national debt can, theoretically, never be repaid. If there was no debt in our economy, there would be no money. Yes, you read that correctly. At least, that is what the Governor of the Federal Reserve Board and the Chairman of the House banking committee thought. Scripture calls the debtor the servant of the lender. It labels as wicked those who borrow and do not repay. If righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people, what does this imply for a society that is built on perpetual debt? What should a Christian do - stop using "greenbacks" and live in a cave? How should the church respond? These and other questions are examined in the light of scripture in this groundbreaking study on money and banking.

More About Peter Allison
Peter Allison is a safari guide who has spent much of the last twelve years leading wildlife-viewing and ecotourism trips in Africa, mostly Botswana. Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, he has a self-deprecating sense of humor that makes him an ideal narrator for a book about the challenges and elusive joys of dealing with tourists in the African bush. His love of animals led him to train as a safari guide in the early 1990s, and soon thereafter he was hired by southern Africa's largest operator to train all of their safari experts. Safaris he has led have been featured in magazines such as Vogue and Conde Nast Traveler (which described him as "silver tongued"). He has assisted National Geographic photographers and appeared on television shows such as Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures. For most of his safari career he has been based at a camp in Botswana called Mombo, which is situated on an oasis in the middle of the Kalahari Desert. Hunters and poachers cannot venture on the island, and tourism is limited to the small camp.Despite having lived in a tent for more than a decade, Peter is a confident public speaker. In Sydney he presents seminars to the business community on animal behavior and its relation to competitive human behavior and power games.Peter is also active with the Athena Foundation, a nonprofit conservation group. He is on the board of the Athena Foundation's youth program, whose mission is to inspire young people to develop their interest in conservation. He currently divides his time between Australia, California, and Botswana. The local Batswana dubbed him "The Sexually Frustrated Elephant." The origin of this epithet is explained in the book.
