"Debts are subject to the laws of mathematics rather than physics. Unlike wealth, which is subject to the laws of thermodynamics, debts do not rot with old age and are not consumed in the process of living.

It is this underlying confusion between wealth and debt which has made such a tragedy of the scientific era."
