    Maybe people will think of it as Monopoly money?

    Edit: You know, it feels like a person just can't win. When the crash happened, they blamed it on irresponsible consumer spending/debt. Now they want us to start spending money willy-nilly again.

    I'm of the mind (expressed a few times here) that themes and ideas would be even more worthwhile printing on currency, rather than people. Printing people seems a little like hero worship, which misses the point of the person's accomplishments.

    I'm still fond of the all-green bill, but I guess it's negotiable.

    I almost never use money at all. I use my debit card for every. thing. Actual money is a real pain.

    Not likely. My betters don't seem to be able to think past the next quarter. I think I don't want to be a Walmart greeter in thirty years.

    The USA should phase out 1c, 2c coins, and replace their obsolete paper notes with modern plastic currency.

    I think people are happy enough. They spend money they don't even have to spend, and the money is bland.. Imagine if they were even happier about spending it??
