Moneymakers: The Secret World of Banknote Printing

Description:
This book is about the most precious "piece of paper" we know, about banknotes. Modern life would be unthinkable without them. Yet, the general public is kept very much in the dark about how they are made or who makes them. It is rarely known, for example, that despite America's technical prowess all dollar bills are printed exclusively on German high-security printing presses using secret Swiss special inks, or that the phony 100 dollar bills, the so-called "supernotes" may well be printed in a top-secret printing works located just north of the White House and run by the CIA — although the US government is blaming the rogue government of North Korea for counterfeiting these bills. This book is finally lifting the veil on an industry used to absolute secrecy. It recounts the stories of a British banknote printer who, fearing the loss of his customer, informed the Egyptian secret service that the securities printing machinery the Egyptians were about to buy was of "Jewish origin"; of a private printer who convinced the Polish central bank that it should destroy a complete series of new, perfect banknotes which had been printed by a competitor; or of an Argentinian high-security printer who came to print "genuine fake" banknotes for Zaire and Bahrain as a result of two sting operations, which smell of the Belgian and French secret service.
Moneymakers, by offering a detailed view of the banknote industry and its modus operandi, removes the industry's carefully imposed shroud of secrecy. This book has been researched over a five-year period in Europe, the USA, and Latin America. The book is based exclusively on personal interviews and confidential material normally not accessible toou Please click here to ask a question
