This undated photo provided by the U.S. Mint shows the President John Adams presidential $1 coin. With the Federal Reserve pumping billions into mortgage bonds every month, a lot of people believe inflation is just around the corner, which will make the dollar worth even less.
The push is on to discontinue the $1 bill, in favor of gold and silver painted coins.
I don't think much of this plan, in spite of the continuing devaluation of the dollar. Think about using a $5 bill to buy something costing $1 to $2.
Do you want three or four bills in change to fold nicely into your wallet or that number of large coins rolling around in your pocket?
I'll take the former.
