Let’s see if you can figure this out.
We know that the U.S. government is “broke,” since money is physical, and is therefore limited. Right?
I mean, it’s not like the U.S. government can create money out of thin air, simply by changing the numbers in bank accounts.
This is why there is no money for something like universal social security.
Now suppose I won a lottery prize of $200 million. That much money in hundred-dollar bills would weigh 2.2 tons. I presume that the money would be loaded onto a dozen armored cars, and delivered to the bank of my choice. I could then access that money using a debit card.
Here is the profound mystery…
If money is physical, then how does the bank manage to squeeze 2.2 tons of money into one of those little plastic cards?
