Translated from ancient Sumerian by: unstattedCommoner
The author writes:
Do you remember those institutions - I think they were called "banks" - where you could deposit your savings, and they would accrue interest? And, if you demonstrated to the bank's satisfaction that you were good for the money, they might see their way to lending you perhaps 50% of the value of your house, or the house you're trying to buy?
I wonder what happened to them.
