ARTICLE: Debt Cancellation in Mesopotamia and Egypt from 3000 to 1000 BC

“The Rosetta Stone text confirms that the tradition of debt cancellation was upheld in Egypt by the pharaohs from the 8th century B.C., before Alexander the Great conquered the country in the 4th century B.C. It relates that the pharaoh Ptolemeus V cancelled all debt due to the Throne by the people of Egypt and beyond, in 196 BC” –  Toussaint, E. ‘Debt Cancellation in Mesopotamia and Egypt from 3000 to 1000 BC’ in Global Research, September 04, 2012.
