This chapter traces the development of a competitive market for simple lending. Starting from the market for acceptances of bills of exchange, which needs no specialists in financial dealings (bankers or even brokers) for it to work, it moves on the emergence of financial operators in a fully monetized economy, to currency exchange to government borrowing.

Keywords: debt; financial markets; trading; lending; government borrowing
