Paper money has been in the process of redesign since 2003, but it’s been a slow process. The US Treasury wanted to maintain the equity of confidence in the bills prompting an evolution rather than a revolution. You know how slow change can be on the federal level. But, I believe a monetary revolution is what’s needed.
With an opportunity like monetary redesign shouldn’t our money work harder for us? What about color, accessibility for the visually impaired, or reference to other visual systems like the National Parks? Ours bills have remained green while many countries print multi-colored bills; should color be a factor? Currently the only accommodations our money makes for the visually impaired are larger numbers and the use of a currency reading device. What about other solutions like size and texture?
The Dollar ReDe$ign Project has challenged the public to reconsider our greenbacks.
