Some people in the US government want to come put with a one trillion dollar coin. Platnum, of course. They think it will fix the economy. I don't really understand what they plan to do with it. I don't think they know either. I doubt the local Wal-Mart would be able to make change if I used it to buy a Snicker's bar. But I've always learned that if a government starts printing a lot of money, the country gets ridiculous inflation. And I doubt that it is so easy to fix a huge deficit. But maybe it is a stroke of genius. If so, maybe the government should make three and a half million of these coins, give one to everyone, and we'll all be rich!
