On MSNBC’s Up With Chris Hayes this morning, the New England Mint debuted this deliciously self-aware two-minute commercial for a trillion-dollar tribute coin, in remembrance of no doubt our country’s foremost heated, hilarious, in-the-weeds argument over platinum-minted uber-currency. Long live the coin! source

Re: Platinum Coin, Pointing out a fact is incorrect ≠ Supporting something

antigovernmentextremist says: Short Form Blog. I’m disappointed. I expected so much better from you. The fact that this is even considered a viable option shows just how far off the handle America is.

» SFB says: I’m not actually in favor of the platinum coin — it’s a weird, crazy idea that deserves the eyerolls it’s getting. I mocked it two nights ago, even. But if you’re going to talk about it, at least get the semantics right. You can be critical of something without misleading people. — Ernie @ SFB

Come on, Rep. Greg Walden. Your party has come up with far more entertaining crackpot ideas than the trillion-dollar coin, which many are dismissing out of hand for obvious reasons. Let folks like Krugman enjoy the ride, OK?! (BTW, I’m gonna call this the economist version of “but it might work for us.”)
