How Bad is the Economy?

It sounds like a joke, but I sold seven one dollar bills on eBay for $15.50 earlier this week.

As Dave Barry would say, I'm not kidding.

Even our paper money is now inflated. True, these one dollar bills did say "Silver Certificate" on them, but the silver backing guarantee had long since been dishonored by our inflationary government.

It says something when the mere memory of silver backing for our currency raises its value. And it doesn't say something good.
