The Euro, currency of choice for drug gangs everywhere

According to today’s WSJ, EU federalists have found an interesting ally in the struggle to keep the Euro above the waterline.

“Why?” I hear you ask. Well, there’s stuff about seigniorage and other technical guff, but here’s the kicker….

….$1 million in $100 bills weighs 22 pounds; in hypothetical $500 bills, it would weigh just 4.4 pounds.

Simple really.

They’re also pretty handy handy when you’re hoovering up a bit of the old Bolivian marching powder.

Hat tip, Ian Geldard.
