Okay, so today I open up my web browser and on my homepage, which is yahoo I see this article about changing the US currency into something similar to the Euro or whatever. First thought that comes to me is, “Wow that’s a pretty dumb, I hope they have a good reason for it…”
It turns out their reason for changing the dollar is to compete with the Euro and the best way to do that is to change the way it looks… I mean SERIOUSLY!?
“The American dollar is in bad need of a makeover. Thanks to the Dollar ReDe$ign Project, we may now have some options.
Organized by creative strategy consultant Richard Smith, the Dollar ReDe$ign Project is soliciting ideas for the dollar bill of the future. “Our great ‘rival’, the Euro, looks so spanky in comparison it seems the only clear way to revive this global recession is to rebrand and redesign,” the project notes on its website.
Fisher started the project in with the intent of “trying to find a catalyst to restart our economy” he told Fox News. The recent competition is now closed, and voting ends on September 30. “This has touched people’s hearts,” Fisher said, and “people feel the dollar touches their lives.”
The leading vote-getter for this year’s competition (pictured below) was submitted by British duo Dowling Duncan, which features a unique vertical design.” -Pulled from the yahoo article
I mean who let Richard Smith and this Fischer out into society with access to a computer without supervision? The euro is “our rival” as they put it because it’s backed by 16 countries and NOT so much with how they freaking look.
Somebody please slap these people immediately and tell them to go back to playing in the corner with their crayons. Leave managing the nation’s currency to the adults.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I think it might be interesting to have redesigned money, but it should definitely be put into effect slowly and not a down right change up when we sure as hell don’t need it. If anything I think we should just try and abolish currency all together so we stop spending money on making money… so we can have more money. haha
And this has been my random post of the month. lol
Here’s a link to the article if you want to read the absurdity of it all for yourself.
