For the last maybe 20 years, I’ve been complaining about pennies. At first I was impressed by the spontaneous order in solutions like the “Have one, leave one. Need one, take one” dish. Then I realized that such accommodations only propped up an evil regime — and I griped to anyone who would listen that we should just get rid of the penny altogether.
Most people either nodded politely at my suggestion or edged away as one might from a mangy dog. But now at last, I’ve found the best (and best-presented) argument for abolishing the penny that I’ve ever seen.
Watch this video from C.G.P. Grey and tell me you don’t disagree.
