According to Keynesian economic theory, spending money is exactly how to get out of a recession. And that is exactly what President Obama did. By the of 2009, the American economy experienced two consecutive quarters of growth and since then, we have not been in a recession. Unemployment is a lagging indicator of economic growth and will likely start to drop by next June or July. Absolutely that is SOUND ECONOMICS. A redesign would address that fact that we are compelled by a court ruling to change the dollar because the judge found that the current design violated the Americans with Disabilities Act as blind Americans cannot distinguish between a $5 bill and a $50.

Finally, if you read the last bit of the article, you may find that our dollar is here to stay as is.

"If these money makeovers weren't enough, The Dollar ReDe$ign Project has even circulated a petition to get the U.S. government to seriously consider their ideas."
