They want to redesign the dollar because :"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."

YEAH, THE BEST WAY OUT OF A RECESSION IS TO SPEND MONEY REDESIGNING PAPER CURRENCY. SOUND ECONOMICS FOR YOU.

 

I guess Obama should be on the dollar bill thouh since hes responsible for about half of them being printed

Hate it. I like our Greenbacks.

And why do we want to be more like Europe, when the whole reason this country was founded was to not be like Europe.

It would certainly be fitting to put Obama on the Dollar that may not be worth any "change" soon.

According to Keynesian economic theory, spending money is exactly how to get out of a recession. And that is exactly what President Obama did. By the of 2009, the American economy experienced two consecutive quarters of growth and since then, we have not been in a recession. Unemployment is a lagging indicator of economic growth and will likely start to drop by next June or July. Absolutely that is SOUND ECONOMICS. A redesign would address that fact that we are compelled by a court ruling to change the dollar because the judge found that the current design violated the Americans with Disabilities Act as blind Americans cannot distinguish between a $5 bill and a $50.

Finally, if you read the last bit of the article, you may find that our dollar is here to stay as is.

"If these money makeovers weren't enough, The Dollar ReDe$ign Project has even circulated a petition to get the U.S. government to seriously consider their ideas."

Blesto (comment #1), you've got it wrong.  In many ways, this country was founded to be like enlightened France.  Why do you think Franklin begged them for help?  Why do you think L'Enfant was the one who laid out the streets for the capitol?  Who do you think Lafayette was?

It would help me sort through my wallet faster if there were more color variation on the bills.  But I would like to see a provision for not having any person depicted who hasn't been dead for at least fifty years, maybe longer.  Banknotes can double as national identity aides-de-mémoire, but they shouldn't double as political propaganda for the next election.

I realize the 'irony' of the first comments.  Enjoyed the humor.  

The others  were more in line with my ideology. 

The biggest fear, that I have, is that if we start printing "New" more recognizable USA/American/USD, that the printing press would not have a 'Stop' button. 

Also, since the $$, that is used for international exchange, is not the $1, $5, $10, $20, $50(maybe); but, the $100 or larger (I personally don't have the larger currency laying around to spend/look-at ;} ).  So, around the World most of the 'regular' folks (masses) would never see these $$. 

Therefore, the masses continue their negative thughts of USA.  Also,thriving on the negative propaganda that would continue to the masses.  Therefore, no positive effect. 

I vote to keep the presses running without changing the current ink and paper quality.   :!) Maybe, the Controller of the Currency will 'STOP THE PRESS,' when the ink gets so 'faded' that NO ONE would know which domination I have in my hand - Thus, satisfying the brail issues.

 VIVA La France!
