    Mint a  $1B coin - just one, as a sample. Make it nice and big and use the finest plastic for the material. Put Obama's face on the obverse and Boehner and McConnell being savagely sodomized by donkeys on the reverse.

    Call in the Chinese ambassador, the British ambassador, the Japanese ambassador, and the CEO's of the 20 largest banks in the world.

    Tell them that if they don't want all their US debt holdings to be paid off in $1B coins like the one Obama is showing them, they'll use their political influence to have the GOP raise the debt ceiling to $25T without a word of complaint.

    Wait 15 minutes.

    Call John Boehner and accept his concession of defeat.

    Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?
