There’s a metaphor in here somewhere, that’s waiting to be plucked and polished into a silver turd, but for now let’s just cock our eyebrows and reserve judgement. “Because of a problem with the presses, the federal government has shut down production of its flashy new $100 bills, and has quarantined more than 1 billion of them — more than 10 percent of all existing U.S. cash — in a vault in Fort Worth, Texas, reports CNBC.” Ah, who are we kidding.
The fucking government can’t even print money anymore. We are all fucked. Because if you can’t print money, you can’t spend it, and if you can’t spend it how are we supposed to increase our debt? Because that’s what governments do, right?
