We have now heard from Liz Truss’s team. They have made it clear that she believed the quote attributed to Mayer Amschel Rothschild to be genuine and was horrified to learn its true origin. She entirely agrees with the UK publisher’s decision to remove this quote from the ebook and any future print editions. We are following up to ensure that her team requests similar removal from English-language publications abroad, as well as any potential foreign language editions.
