|Gee, putting money into the real economy cures depressions. Who'd have thought! FDR did. See the story of the $100,000 bill.
A $1 trillion-dollar coin seems like a high denomination to ask the government to print.
Some say its weight could sink the Titanic! (This is benightedly ludicrous).
But one time, the U.S. government actually got 1/10000000th of the way there -- by printing a $100,000 bill. And it really helped the economy.
