Joseph Hilaire Pierre René Belloc (/hɪˈlɛər ˈbɛlək/; French: ; 27 July 1870 – 16 July 1953) was an Anglo-French writer and historian and one of the most prolific writers in England during the early twentieth century. Belloc was also an orator, poet, sailor, satirist, writer of letters, soldier, and political activist. His Catholic faith had a strong impact on his works. He was President of the Oxford Union and later MP for Salford from 1906 to 1910.

First published in 1922, The Mercy of Allah describes the civilization of the Arabs through the extraordinary tales a wealthy grandfather relates to his beloved grandchildren. These richly textured stories show how this prosperous Arab deceived his own countrymen to gain great fortunes, while also demonstrating the richness of Arab culture through the ages. The cultural standards described are still quite common in the Middle East. Mahmoud's saga points out the contrasts between Western and Eastern attitudes toward trade, banking, and human relations. And, of course, we see the central roles that religion and family play in everyday Arab life.

So relevant to our presentation situation! Pay attention to the gold standard references and the many cultural mores that are hinted at here.

The Mercy of Allah
Hilaire Belloc

Belloc's light-hearted satire on the entrepreneurial exploits of the merchant Mahmoud is as relevant and lucidly readable today as it was in 1922. Set in Arabia "in the days of Abd-er-Rahman", the roving venture capitalist recounts his parables to his seven nephews being Belloc's attack on greed in the modern West. Running from failure, finding uncountable success, Mahmoud's projects include bridge tolls, land speculation, banking and circulation of currency, and financing war, or better financing both sides of a war.

Mahmoud unscrupulously provides insight, entertainment, and detail of scams, fraud and exploitation with the caution that "Until a man's wealth has grown so great that he can command the whole state, he is always in some peril" or that "The bold hunter slays the lion, the timid is slain of the cub". Strictly a business entrepreneur the money is always drained from the community or the state.

"The Mercy of Allah" is another of Hilaire Belloc's books attractive to a wider audience than his restrictive and outdated description as "a great warrior for the Roman Catholic cause".

Belloc sardonically recounts the exploits of one Mahmoud, a sharp Baghdad merchant turned money lender who has grasped and clawed his way to the top. Ostensibly a critique of Islamic culture set many centuries ago, the book is really an attack on the unbridled greed of the modern West. As a work of socio-economic satire it forms a nice complement to Belloc's Distributist writings like The Servile State. A. N. Wilson calls it "the most brilliant of his fantasies."
