Occupy George [1] is looking to inform the public of America’s daunting economic disparity, one bill at a time. By circulating dollar bills stamped with fact-based infographics, they hope to focus attention on wealth disparity in America.

As the prints below show, its a fun idea with one small problem: The Bureau of Engraving and Printing prints about 16,650,000 one dollar bills each day.

So get crackin’, Occupy George! In the 90 seconds it took to read this, you have fallen another 17,344 dollar bills behind!
