Remember the first time
You heard cash called cabbage?
Remember what you thought?

ISN'T MONEY FUNNY?

I'VE BEEN A CASHIER ALOT IN THE PAST TWO YEARS, SO I'VE HEARD PEOPLE EXPRESSING THEMSELVES FREELY ABOUT THE NEW CURRENCY DESIGNS. AS BOB DYLAN ONCE SAID,

"WOWIE!! PRETTY SCAREY!!!"

I ASKED A SAVVY FRIEND OF MINE WHY THE DOW-JONES AVERAGE HAD STARTED TO SKY-ROCKET WHEN IT WAS AROUND 6000. HIS ANSWER WAS THIS:

"PRIVATIZATION OF INFLATION."

SO, WHO KNOWS WHAT $100 IS REALLY WORTH?
WASN'T IT ALWAYS RELATIVE TO DEMAND?


ANYHOW,

HERE'S SOME FUN WITH MON - EY...

NICKNAMES FOR CASH

$1 - CHERRY TREE
$5 - LOG CABIN
$10 - AARON BURR
$20 - MUDDY CARPETS
$50 - TALES OF BRAVE?
$100 - KITE FLYER

GET THE IDEA? AMONG FRIENDS, WE TRUST! ALL OTHERS PAY CASH, RIGHT? SPEAKING OF FLYING KITES, HOW MIGHT THE ECONOMY BE LIKE A HOT-AIR BALOON? SOON, I WILL DESCRIBE HOW POSITIVES can "flip-over" and become NEGATIVES. WOULD ANYONE WANT TO BE IN A HOT-AIR BALOON - way high up - WHEN THIS HAPPENS? Think of it all as "staying GROUNDED"
