Just Junk

One Pirate's junk is another stick person's treasure.

It occurs to me that those who are satisfied with life often covet material objects a lot less than people like me. Well, shiny things are nice as I’m sure everyone would agree, but they’re just not necessary in the same way for people. In Pirate’s case, I guess she’s getting tired of tripping over gemstones and gold nuggets. How I envy her.

Fair-ish Trade

Apples are worth their weight in gold. That doesn’t mean you should trade based off of that principle, though. Stick-people know Pirate well; she could care less about shiny rocks, but she loves apples. Well, if she thinks it’s a fair trade then everything’s okay I guess.

Pirate's concept of value is odd. (Or is it normal?)

Supply and Excess

They say the road to hell…Pirate means well, but this is the one moment where she can really ruin the economy. Well, our countries don’t use the gold standard anymore, so we’re mostly safe. In the stick-people’s world though, Pirate’s a walking economic apocalypse.

Maybe they should try the silver standard instead.

Fiscal Relativity

It’s another picture about economic theory! …Yay? Anyways, have you ever considered how much an apple is worth relative to size? For an adult, it’s a snack. For Pirate it’s a meal. For Rabbit, it’s food for a day. For stick-people, it’s food for 50. And they all want that apple.

An apple is worth a lot to everyone! ...Why don't you just share?
