The Kingdom of Ern, Excerpt:
“King Ernest was a generous king, so as prices rose he insisted that the people be paid more for their work. He even paid people who could not find work. And when he ran short of money he simply printed more with his royal printing press. But even though wages increased, prices rose even faster and his subjects were worse off than before.”
Tommy’s Balloon, Excerpt:
“The local storekeeper, Mr. Venture said he would be willing to loan Tommy the money to buy the materials he needed. The storekeeper hoped that Tommy's balloon would attract a lot of people to Pine Valley, so that Mr. Venture would be able to sell more of his products. All the town elders shook their heads disapprovingly at Tommy and the Storekeeper for putting their savings and their time into such a risky business.”
- Lucy’s Money Adventure, Excerpt:
“What year is this?" Lucy asked. "Why, it's 1859," said the boy. "Neat," said Lucy. She then pulled out a little plastic flashlight she had in her pocket and asked the little boy if he would like to trade something for it. The boy was fascinated with the light and offered Lucy a 3¢ coin, dated 1857. Lucy was eager to trade for his coin and thanked him.”
- The Money Machine, Excerpt:
“Uncle Sam asked for volunteers to distribute the money machines and make sure they never ran out of paper. The local bankers, Fred Reserve and Hal Green, were happy to keep track of all the money machines. Before long, with everyone having their own money machines, things in Sunny Valley began to change.”
