Inflation.

In a few more years, maybe a few months, maybe one will push a wheelbarrow full of cash to buy groceries. Leave it unattended for a few moments, and the wheelbarrow is gone, after the thieves dumped the cash out on the sidewalk because the money is worth a lot less than the wheelbarrow.

Because the gub'mint can always print more.

Sounds like Venezuela right now.

I saw a news story on Japanese TV about the Venezuelan situation. They showed a roll of toilet paper and how much cash was required to buy that roll of toilet paper. The cash was 4 times larger than the roll of toilet paper which the news reporters sadly joked that it would be cheaper to wipe their butts with the cash than the toilet paper!

FWIW

Yep. And depending on what the cash was printed on, it might be something that could be then washed and re-used to get quite a few wipes out of it before it wears out..

LOL... recyclable toilet paper!

FWIW

Yep. Picture paper money, covered in fresh feces, being rinsed out and hung up to dry to wipe another bum the next day.
