War debt

"Before computers were invented, there was NO demand, but a guy had an idea"...
There were governments with demand for computing power. First of all for making their wars more effective through more accurate ballistic devices , cryptography and other machines needed in warfare. So they issued war loans as always to develop for example computers.
The currency system of today is largely accumulated circulating war debt.
