http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/economy/penny.html Interesting article from the CBC website on whether or not Canada should keep the penny or follow after Australia and New Zealand and eliminate it. They also draw an interesting comparison to the British farthing and its eventual demise in the 1950's. I've always been a proponent of eliminating the penny here in the U.S. I think we could easily adopt the Swedish rounding system and come out even, saving the U.S. Mint loads of money in the meantime. Of course, this would probably take a huge bite out of the copper industry, but there is always a good and bad side to every situation. Thoughts?
