It is the most flimsy penny I have ever seen. It’s shinny and new and it still has President Abe Lincoln on it, but it’s so thin. You can actually bend it with your fingers. I know. I tried it and it worked.
If you compare a 2011-penny to a 1971-penny, you will notice that the 1971-penny is ever so slightly thicker than the 2011-penny.
I don’t know about you, but I feel that in today’s society, a penny is actually worthless. You can’t even buy bubble gum anymore for a penny! So why do we even have pennies? Why can’t we just round everything either up or down?
So, say for example, the price of something is $3.54. Just make the price $3.55 and call it a day. Or, on the flip side, if something is $2.92, round it down to $2.90. Will it really make that much of a difference in our economy?
