Somehow I did not overly react to this news. I found myself biting my lower lip and chuckling, "well a lot of money does change hands on both Wall Street and in Washington."
I also recall an article I posted about American Express Bank Intl Ltd (or whatever name change it has morphed to these days) and money laundering with both the Mexican and South American drug cartels.
We know Hollywood snorts up a storm and that amounts to a huge stack of Bens.
Little average Americans like us rarely get to touch currency anymore. We were brainwashed into the plastic frenzy and the only paper we touched, up until eStatements, was a monthly statement.
Meaningful statistics on this study would be such as where the largest concentration of those bills were found to be circulated. That would be the fact I need to support my aforementioned statement...
Sorry. No shock and awe here.
