A Platinum Parachute off the Fiscal Cliff

Posted December 14th, 2012 by MuslimNonarchist

Insanity abounds! An old suggestion has resurfaced that was originally made during the debt ceiling crisis in 2011. Cullen Roche, writing for the Pragmatic Capitalist, shared a suggestion sent to him by one of his readers, and the unusual idea had made it all the way to the desks of Yale law professors and court economists. Now the suggestion has resurfaced, this time from Brad Plumer, writing for the Washington Post. To solve the economic crisis all they have to do is issue two shiny new platinum coins worth … wait for it … $1 trillion dollars each!
