Quote Source?

I remember a quote somewhere in the Crash Course that went something like "Concepts that are so simple are often repelled by the mind".  I'm trying to find who this quote is attributed to but can't locate it again on the course?  Does anyone recall or know what section it was in?

Thx

I believe the quote is from John Kenneth Galbraith in "Money: Whence it came, where it went".  I'm not sure of the section but I'll look.

It is indeed John Kenneth Galbraith and the exact quote is:

"The process by which money is created is so simple, the mind is repelled"

And you will find it in Chapter 7 of the Crash Course in the first 40 seconds.
