Canada finally did what the US needs to do: they got rid of the penny. Good for them. We need to do the same considering it costs almost 2 1/2 times the value of the coin to make our penny, according to this Chicago Tribune article and many others. It is called negative seigniorage. So why are we keeping the penny around? Are we still making them? Is there some zinc lobbyist keeping a stranglehold on our government?
I am one who enjoys trying to multitask. There is a certain sense of accomplishment when I do. At work, I know my job well enough to be able to possibly do several things at once. But what I do is not brain multitasking. Brain multitasking is dangerous and self defeabecause our brains just can’t do it. As a matter of fact, it is said that if you THINK you are a good multitasker, you are probably worse at it. Give it up and concentrate. You will wish you had a long time ago.
