The fathers of our banking system – The ‘banchieri’ Medici family. Here 3 generations are shown being the “Wise Men” worshiping baby Jesus. By the time Pius II became pope, he said of Cosimo Medici (the man at Jesus’ feet), “Political questions are settled at his house. The man he chooses holds office…He it is who decides peace and war and controls the laws..He is king in everything but name.”  Between 1397 and 1420, they made a 32% profit on money lending per year.
