What's wrong with the US Dollar? Are there alternative currencies that serve as a better store of value? Denis and Lydia interview Ron Helwig, inventor of Shire Silver, an open-source, metal-based currency with a number of interesting features: convenience, QR "smartphone" codes, and tactile differentiability for the blind. Mr. Helwig was recently featured in an NPR Planet Money podcast and invites others to replicate his efforts.
