The trending topic for today is the new $100 bill -- a curious thing to get excited about, given the other activities of the Treasury Department -- and the disfavor with which it is generally viewed.

Three possibilities for the relief of the afflicted:


  1. The counterfeiters catch up - it didn't take them very long the last time -- and the entire money supply has to be redesigned for the better.
  2. Hyperinflation hits - the currency designers will improve on their work with the new $500, $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000 bills. The $100 will be lining birdcages.
  3. Money goes paperless - debit cards for everything, and the only paper money will be in the hands of numismatists.


All in all, there are worse things than ugly money. Personally, I would be willing to defer any and all aesthetic considerations if I simply had more of it.
