After having to lay off the zeppelin crew from the
prospective NMRM Co silver reclamation business, from
the lining of clouds, it's not worth the 300 grams per
cloud apparently, I found myself with time on my hands.
Anyway, concerning the EU standardisation of the
banana, I have decided
that if they're that standard then
them as a currency, achieving two goals.
1) The aforementioned pan-species currency,
well....uniting the simian world, presumably our cousins
the ape world would soon cotton on to growing bananas,
levelling out wealth human:our simians cousins.
2) Over a staged transition of replacing the $, £, RMB etc
with bananas, most countries in the banana growing
countries would become incredibly wealthy so more
equally distributing wealth to poor countries.
Consequences might range from fairly trivial to a 225%
on Chinese bananas, the discovery in fossil records
indicating that the dinosaurs had a proto-banana banking
crash, leading to their mass starvation and the Yucatan
Basin bolide was a mere sideshow.
How scientists taught monkeys the concept of money.

||//pan-species currency// So, just chimpanzees then? The gorillas are going to be very annoyed.
||Well, at least it's not in other: general
||If it wasn't for standards bodies, sometimes a cigar would
be just a cigar
||Some species of monkey should be intelligent enough to learn to use currency. IIRC at least one monkey has been. It would be an interesting experiment to train a few hundred monkeys to use currency, verify they're using it correctly (buying and selling for coin), and then set them loose to see how capitalism fares in the wild.
||There isnt even a pan-human currency. Unless you count
pans, which everyone needs.
||I bet a US $20 bill has value in every single country, if you go to the local black market.
