Growing Money Trees Art

What if money could grow on trees?

Wouldn’t that be lovely?

I personally find it humorous that most of the global economy is based on the growth of money, as if money itself has life, like a plant! This is out of necessity…money is created by issuing debt, so you have to ‘grow’ it and make more to pay back the debt. The paradox is that there is always more debt than there is money to pay it. So then you have man-made competition to participate in and income inequality, since some win and some lose in such a credit-based system. I could keep going, but why not just laugh at it instead? That’s why I created this artwork of a dollar bill planted in a pot, with money trees growing in the background!
