But the value of money would shrink so drastically because of the sudden millionaire status of just about everyone on Earth. The money plant wouldn't = riches. Just massive massive MASSIVE inflation of prices.

You guys don't get it...if inflation strikes you just plant another tree! Then you tell everybody else not to, and they'll believe you because you have a lot of "believe me serum" from the "believe me serum tree." Oh, and we'll support t0dd...sincew everyone else in the city will be poor he'll be really well off.

Even if inflation went up it wouldnÂ’t affect most people. Once you bought one of something, you would never have to buy it again.

Need a new pair of jeans, plant your old ones.

I'd plant an oak tree. Then, when my tree of oak trees matured, I'd plant that tree. Repeat as desired.

Why would you plant a money tree? Eliminate the middle man, plant what you would've spent the money on.

RE: what would you plant?

Sure, you'd be cutting out a middle man, but planting a money tree would be so much simpler. You'd have all the money to buy whatever you desire in one tree. If you planted everything else, you'd have to have a thousand trees. Not cool. I'd stick with the money tree.

And are we sure it would grow? Some seeds are duds. And I can plant a seed from the biggest tomato in the world, but that doesn't mean that what grows is going to be an exact duplicate of what was planted. So, does that mean that if I planted a $100 bill, I might get a few $20s, and maybe a couple of $50s?

The key to this way to change the world would be:
A) Keep it a secret from the rest of the world, which wouldn't work. Think of what our land fills would look like.
-OR-
2) To only make a small portion of land plantable. Say that only about a 500 acre plot of land will be able to reproduce anything that is planted. That way, you could have total control over what is planted. The only problem with that would be that you wouldn't have room to plant EVERYTHING. So, you'd have to choose between food that would feed starving people, money that would make you rich, housing that would end homelessness, body parts (hearts, lungs, kidneys, etc.) that would help the dying, etc., etc. Be selfish? Or help make the world a better place?

RE: what would you plant?

True. Besides that, imagine all the casket-and-dead-people trees we'd have around in cemetaries stinkin' up the place. Diseases everywhere, too. When dogs bury bones in the backyard, you'd have tons of bone trees. Sewer trees, too. Too much stinky stinky.

Or, if you can't smell, you could just plant poor people and grow a poor people tree and have thousands more roaming the Earth, obligating all the companies to keep their prices low so that the poor tree people could afford stuff. Then you, with your money tree, could easily be superior to them.

Me? I'd rather plant a money azalia bush. Grow quarters and dimes instead. Loose change comes in handy when you have to park in the city.

Or buy something really rare and valueable off of eBay, and then plant it and make a really-rare-and-valueable-eBay-thing tree, and sell the really-rare-and-valueable-eBay-things over and over again.

Or save myself some time and just plant the money tree. Either way.
I forgot my point.
