If this is the first time the banking system has been explained to you - and you find it hard to believe, you are in good company. John Kenneth Galbraith, former professor of economics at Harvard, writing in ‘Money: Whence it came, where it went’ (1975) said:

"The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled. With something so important, a deeper mystery seems only decent.”
