monopoly money

  1. Fact:

    More money is printed daily for the Monopoly game than by the U.S. Treasury.

    I wonder if is this is still true?

    You realize that the vast majority of what one would consider money isn't in the form of currency, right? How much of your income do you ever see in green? For me, it's about 2-3%. In the old days (say 50 years ago) people didn't have direct deposit. They didn't even get paychecks. Nope, every week they received an envelope with cash in it.

    Hard to imagine.
  3. I'm confused. I was under the impression that Monopoly money IS what the Fed prints!
