There’s plenty you can do with a dollar these days. Here are some things that cost about a buck:
5 piece Crispy Chicken Nuggets, at Wendy’s
A Caramel Apple Empanada, at Taco Bell
A two-liter bottle of no-name soda pop, at the grocery store
A dubious hangover remedy, at the convenience store check-out counter
An Easy To Fly Funny Kite, at the Dollar Store
Two romance novels, at the thrift store
A rerun of The Office on Comcast Cable On Demand
A one-night DVD rental, from a Redbox vending machine
An MP3 of “Low Budget,” by The Kinks, at Amazon.com
Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America, by Barbara Ehrenreich, on Half.com (not including postage — you’ll have to take up a collection for that).
One Share of Citibank
Source: MoneyFeature Blogs
I am glad that a sorry buck can still buy so many things, what with all the inflation going on over the past thirty years.
Anyway, I am not interested in buying one share of Citibank (one of the nation's mightiest financial institutions but how it has fallen from grace), even if I happen to have some dollars to spare.
There is every possibility of the share going to zero, either from a government nationalization or the shortists bringing the bank to its knees.
