Who sez the paper dollar has no intrinsic value?
OK–maybe that’s true of paper dollars as printed. But as folded, paper dollars can increase their value dramatically. Look what someone has done with dollar bills to make works of art.
The fish on the right was made with a single $1 bill. Would you pay $5 for it? $10? $20?
Just imagine if you could sell all of your $1 bills for $20.
Maybe the Federal Reserve should learn origami and, instead of printing dollars in dull, flat piles, start issuing paper dollars folded to resemble animals, insects, jet planes and tanks. Maybe that would give our currency some value.
I received an email with these attached photos. The workmanship is whimsical and amazing.
