The Internet is abuzz with reaction to the Treasury Department's announcement that the government will redesign the $10 bill, which now features Alexander Hamilton, so that it will include an image of a woman. We're less concerned here with whose image is on the $10 — Harriet Tubman, Janet Yellin, Hillary Clinton, Sojourner Truth...heck, even Barack Obama's heroine Golda Meir would all be fine candidates — than about its value, which is plummeting, as measured by how much of a ticket to Disney World it can buy, or how much of a Picasso painting it can buy. Printing someone else's picture on the thing can't disguise that it's fiat currency.
P.S. Re Hamilton, there's a case to be made that it would be good riddance to the man Arthur Schlesinger Jr. called "the father of big government in America."
