Economic fallacy. Only the rarity of silver would be a contributing factor to the cost of making film, and frankly I doubt that proportionately enough silver was/is used in making film to be a factor. Please prove wrong, is even more than 1% of the world's mined silver used in film production? If not then please keep your fallacies to yourself, and let those who know something speak.

Pssst. Want to buy some Stossels? They’re my own currency with my face on them.

Why should you trust them?

Because I promise to redeem them for gold. And I’m reliable. I have money in the bank and a job that brings in more than I spend.

By contrast, the politicians who back American currency run an unsustainable deficit.

The Federal Reserve prints so much money that since it opened its doors in 1914, the dollar has lost more than 90 percent of its value.

OK, I won’t really sell Stossels. Americans get jailed for offering alternative currencies. The government insists...
