I'm not condoning counterfeiting by any means, but this kind of story always makes me sad.  The counterfeiters are usually laughably incompetent, although they manage to pass their fake $1 and $5 bills more often than you might think, mainly because most people will assume that nobody would be desperate enough to counterfeit bills that small.  Or maybe it's just pity.  (That's the counterfeiter's angle.)

But counterfeiting is one of those crimes that, on any scale, whips up government fury, and they'll bury you in prison for as long as they possibly can, whether you were trying to counterfeit fifty million dollars worth of $100 bills, or ten dollars' worth of $1 bills, so that you can buy yourself breakfast.

Meanwhile down the street, Chase Imperial Citimaster Megabank can effectively print all the money they want by nudging the Fed to lower the rates a bit, they can drive their business off the edge of a cliff, get rescued by the taxpayers, and then scream and sue later because they think they should have gotten a better deal, and we build massive solid-gold statues of them and bow down in reverent worship.

Rummy world.
