    That thought has occurred to me also.

    Better a scarce rock than a paper with some number on it.

    You could use leaves as the Golgafrinchams did. But inflation was a bit of a problem.

    Using an easy to find rock would be the dumbest yet. Strip-mine your way into hyperinflation!

    In today’s age we don’t even have paper money. We have electronic bookkeeping entries. To have value a currency must have some degree of scarcity or nobody would except it in an exchange. Money that is not based on a commodity risks being devalued by governments and banks.

    The value of the US’s paper money is only the opinion that it has value. It’s not based on the gold standard anymore.

    The only money we have that actually has any value is the change, the metal coins tha t jingle-jangle-jingle.

    A number of people apparently live under rocks, and yet they are able to use the internet to post political comments on these message boards


    Must be an awful lot of those rocks, maybe we could use those for money

    There are other minerals more expensive than gold. Iridium, gallium arsenide, chromium and platinum to name a few.

    Of course, gold doesn’t really have much intrinsic value aside from being shiny and really good for electrical connections. The only issue with basing the value of your currency on ANYTHING because you say the basis has value is pretty much the same thing as just saying “This dollar is worth this much.”

    Of course, we can’t have a pure “this for that” economy, so having an artificially derived basis for money is just as good as having an artificially derived basis for money.

    How about Pet Rocks? Are they worth anything?
