Enthusiastic about cool payment in kind, like lobster they could not afford, Burt and Virginia convince their simpleton neighbors to organize an 'alternative' barter system. It works but people bicker over the exchange value of goods and services, so the next step is a fake currency, 'Burt bucks'.

The Chance couple can't resist the temptation to print and spend a lot they never earned, which causes a devastating devaluation. Written by
