Argentine Pesos

December 9, 2009

Since Argentina seems to have a habit of having its own financial crisis every 10 years or so, it is very good about updating their money supply with some very fine looking paper. Below is a sample of what we carry as our “walking around” money. Since Argentina is a cash and carry economy, we have a lot of time to inspect the cash we carry. We think it looks infinitely better than old George, Alexander, and Benjamin. We especially like the small bios on the back of each — the kids think the US should start doing this as well.

(As an aside, I think Bernanke could be distant relative of Julio Roco — they look very similar to me!)
