Descripción

Neuware - Es gibt auf der Welt kein zweites Industrieprodukt, dass jeder Mensch so häufig in der Hand hält wie die Banknote. Aber es gibt auch kaum einen anderen Wirtschaftszweig, der sich derart hermetisch gegen die Blicke der Öffentlichkeit abschirmt, von Geheimnissen umgeben ist, wie der Druck der Banknoten. Die Herstellung des Sicherheitspapiers und der Banknotendruck bilden den Kern dieser Hochsicherheitsbranche. Unter den Begriff 'Sicherheitsdruck' fällt noch sehr viel mehr: Schecks, Wertpapiere, Pässe, Personalausweise, Lotterielose, Eintrittskarten für Großveranstaltungen, Flugtickets - und seit einigen Jahren sogar die mit Magnetstreifen oder Chip ausgerüsteten Plastikkarten für Zugangskontrollen sowie die Karten der Krankenversicherungen. Alles an dieser Branche ist streng vertraulich. Die hier verwendeten Druckmaschinen und das Papier dürfen nirgends sonst eingesetzt werden. Neben dem sachlich gebotenen Sicherheitsbedürfnis gibt es noch einen weiteren Grund für die Geheimniskrämerei der Branche: Die Hersteller, staatliche wie private, möchten sich nicht in die Karten schauen lassen. Genau dies aber hat Klaus Bender getan. In seinem spannenden Buch weiht er seine Leser in einige Geheimnisse der Zunft ein. Denn die Öffentlichkeit hat ein Recht auf eine gewisse Transparenz: Schließlich geht es in diesem Gewerbe immer auch um die Verwendung von Steuergeldern. This book is about the most precious piece of paper we know, about bank-notes. 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 Argentinean high-security printer who came to print genuine fake bank-notes 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 mate4rial normally not accessible to outsiders. There were attempts to stop this research project. Klaus W.

Sinopsis:

This book is about the most precious piece of paper we know, about bank-notes. 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 Argentinean high-security printer who came to print genuine fake bank-notes 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.

From the Inside Flap:

This book is about the most precious piece of paper we know, about banknotes. Paper money was invented by the Chinese - one thousand years later, the American colonists were the first ones in the Western world to systematically use it, even financing their revolution by issuing huge numbers of dollar bills. Modern life would be unthinkable without paper money. Yet, the general public is kept very much in the dark about how banknotes are made or who makes them. This secrecy is regularly explained as legitimate special security for a very special product. But it also has to do with the unusual, highly6 politicized structure of the market. The armaments industry immediately comes to mind. This obsession with secrecy, however, seems out of place in the era of the internet. After all, banknote printing involves the massive use - and often waste- of taxpayers' money.

This is the first book offering an in-depth view of the banknote industry and its modus operandi. The only known former attempt to reveal this story was by an American author. The edition of that book was bought up - straight from the printing presses - by two prominent representatives of the industry because the public was not supposed to get an inside view of the business.

Moneymakers 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 to outsiders. There were attempts to stop this research project. Many witnesses interviewed spoke under condition of strict confidentiality for fear of reprisals by their employers. As a rule therefore, the author refrained from verbatim quotes and, as far as possible, tried to confirm every piece of information by two independent sources.
