Hello there Billy!
Let me tell you something...
about one major change on our cutie lil' town of ours, the Happy Street!
Change is good, I like change!
Oh I want to hear this, this is going to be good.
You know how Floozie pushed for us to buy land with flooz ?
Well his meddling with the holy invisible hand of the market stops now!
Since I'm the one with the gold here...
from now on I declare we buy land with coins, and not flooz anymore!
And because we have -thanks to my business acumen-
much MUCH more coins, it will be easier and faster to grab land...
so that you, Billy, can build even more!
With your tiny hands!
Oh great, more stuff to build... and sooner.
Yeah I always said three hours of sleep at night was way too much of a luxury.
But wait a minute!
We used to save flooz to buy land!
If now we buy it with coins, the flooz we keep under our mattresses every day will depreciate!
"Depreciate?" Oh Zoe, what have you been reading?
Fifty shades of Grey and the Wealth of Nations.
I read one before going to bed, and the other when I'm in the loo.
Well yes, Zoe, having more flooz means inflation.
And you know me, the two evils in the world are:
sneezing while eating rice and inflation.
That is why I asked calculator face here, to run some numbers!
The name is Pryce.
Yes, and Pryce is always right! Explain away!
As you know the more flooz you have the more things that need flooz cost.
By my calculations from the extra flooz we save by buying land with coins...
the price of things that need flooz will go up 2.5 times.
Two point FIVE!? That's ludicrous!
A revolution must be called!
Burn the establishment, HASTA SIEMPRE!
But because Mr. Pepin here managed to avoid a liquidity trap...
that would consequently impede consumption, production and innovation...
I'm already snoring.
The words! They mean nothing to me!
Cut to the chase, calculator boy!
Ok cutting short:
the price of things that need flooz is now 1.5 more expensive than before,
rather than the natural 2.5 times it should have been.
Thanks to Mr. Pepin benevolent...
and strong-handed intervention on the innocent free market.
Thank you Pryce! See, who's the man! Yeah!?
It still costs a half more than before.
Why can't the price of things that need flooz stay the same?
Because the world ain't a hot dog...
or else we'd all order one with everything.
Ok ok so we have more flooz now, since...
we don't have to buy land with flooz anymore.
Things cost a bit more but we still have more flooz than before.
Did I get everything right?
And if you have some spared pennies under your mattress...
You could make me happy and buy some pack of flooz...
and you'll get 1.5 more
Well that doesn't sound as alarming as I first thought.
It actually sounds fair, Pepin.
Of course it's fair! Who do you think I am, Billy... a scoundrel?
You know me since the beginning:
I always do what's best for those living in Happy Street.
Well, if it was just up to me, we'd buy everything with poop.
