Seigniorage! A Senator Used the Word!

If you’re a dollar coin fetishist like me, you’ll enjoy this  funny Huffington Post article on Senator Vitter’s attempt to crush the dollar coin movement. In a delightful twist, the Senator even uses the word ‘seigniorage,’ and the article explains its meaning.


It turns out Senator Vitter’s colleague Senator Enzi is actually a supporter of coins, so we have the makings of a showdown. This is fun.

Public Speaking


I founded Bankers Anonymous because, as a recovering banker, I believe that the gap between the financial world as I know it and the public discourse about finance is more than just a problem for a family trying to balance their checkbook, or politicians trying to score points over next year’s budget – it is a weakness of our civil society. For reals. It’s also really fun for me.
