Canadian currency vs. US currency in rap music videos
January 2, 2010 1 Comment
In 2008, the United States dollar was worth less than the Canadian dollar. It’s going to be a sad day when rap music videos show more people hauling around briefcases full of Canadian currency over American currency.
Rappers already have music videos where they carry around Euros over US dollars. But, that makes sense though, because the Euro kind of sounds like the gyro sandwitch, which is a very tasty. Many investors flock to the Euro because it sounds so good.
I don’t know why US rappers have been flocking to the Euro since the decline of the US dollar. Some rap lyrics say that cops are always after them and there are guns everywhere. In that kind of world, do you really need to hedge you cash against declines in currency?
If US currency was named the “chicken sandwich” or the “BLT” instead of the dollar, I think that the value of the US dollar would rise, because everybody likes those sandwiches and all those sandwiches are worth more than a dollar.
Another way to increase the value of US currency is to change the name from the dollar to the ten dollars. More people would want to buy the US ten dollars currency over the US dollar currency because it sounds more valuable. The increase in value in the ten dollars currency would be short lived, when people find out that it is the same thing. However, it is Un-American to not do something that benefits you in the short term regardless of the long term consequences.
