Big Mac and Globes Get Unpegged - United Nations, New York, September 2034
The Globe, the virtual world currency that was introduced in 2023 when monetary fluctuations were causing a financial world crisis, will no longer be pegged to the price of a Big Mac. The McDonalds favorite is no longer viable as a monetary unit now that the burger company is retreating from more and more countries and can't seem to get out of the slump it has been in. The IMF declared it will probably look at pegging the Globe to five or more globally used products. Rumors have it that Coke, Starbucks and Heineken are to be part of the list. Analysts are speculating on what the public will choose to replace 'Big Mac' with as slang for the Globe. Frappé, Coke or Heini just don't sound as good.
