Essays On Usury Usury does not mean high interest. It means any interest, however low, demanded for an unproductive loan. It is not only immoral [on which account it has been condemned by every moral codePaganMohammedanor Catholic] but it is ultimately destructive of society.
It has only been the rule of our commerce to take usury since the breakup of Europe following on the Reformation. Usury will destroy our society, but meanwhile there is no escape from it. We are coming near the end of its maleficent action, not through awaking to its evils but because it is reaching the end of its resources.
The Great War loans, which are almost entirely usurious, have powerfully accelerated this process. The modern world is organized on the principle that money of its nature breeds money. A sum of money lent has, according to our present scheme, a natural right to interest.
That principle is false in economics as in morals. It ruined Rome, and it is bringing us to our end. Supposing a man comes to you and says: But I have no capital with which to build this house. Let us go fifty-fifty. That will be five percent on my money, and I shall be content.

The emigrant did not reappear. By the beginning of the eighteenth it was a bank in due form, and its successor today is part of one of the great banking concerns of our time.
The original deposit has gone on "fructifying," as the phrase goes, with the liability piling up, but no one claiming it. At last, in this yearan heir turns up and proves his title.
The capital sum into which this modest investment of a thousand pounds at five percent has grown is to be paid over to him under an order of the court. Do you know how much it will come to? Let us take a less fantastic example, and perhaps it will be more convincing.
