The Mark Twain Solution

20130109-073106.jpgIt was several years ago that I first heard the suggestion that the debt could be monetized by minting platinum coins with huge face value, a trillion dollars, for example. The idea has reappeared recently as a possible response to the debt ceiling.

I wonder if those making the suggestion are basing their wishful thinking on a certain story by Mark Twain.
