Creating money out of thin air

My friend Scott sent me this video of a magician creating money out of thin air. I thought it was pretty good. This guy is better than a central banker. If only he could do trillion dollar platinum coins instead of normal ones! Being the investing, econ sort of people, we both also thought it was pretty germane to today’s economic environment, don’t you think?

    Can’t watch that video, the TDC was a good idea in terms of an educational aid, in terms of policy and politics it was a bad joke.
