Government can’t print money properly

As a metaphor for our troubled economic and financial era -- and the government's stumbling response -- this one's hard to beat. You can't stimulate the economy via the money supply, after all, if you can't print the money correctly. 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.


I guess this is what happens when you are in a hurry doing the wrong thing. Can we say Karma???
I know, maybe no one will notice, its all funny money anyway....

kind of makes you wonder how many got away and are all ready floating around doesn't it?

Actually every day I deal with money and I swear I used to be able to tell the funny money. Now they have so many different things I just can't tell anymore. I have it in my hand and have a sense it isnt right, but just go ahead and pass it along anyway. Makes you wonder who the real counterfeiters are these days.

I'm guessing there's something I don't understand, but how can the US money supply only consist of $930 billion when I thought a lot more than that was printed up in recent history?

How the heck did they print one billion of them before they noticed the defects?? Great quality control there.

This is the line that really kills me...




The flawed bills, which cost around $120 million to print, will have to be burned.


Really??? I even hate that saying but I just cant help it... Really????

But they sure can print tons of it, can't they. It's not worth the paper it's printed on.
