A Contradiction: Making a Penny Costs Two Pennies

Ever bought something for $99.99? Maybe you have, maybe haven’t. I don’t know. But if you have, then you have probably have handed over a $100, Benjamin Franklin, and you were supposed to receive one penny, Abraham Lincoln. One penny makes everyone like “meh.” So most of the time, people don’t get their pennies, and interestingly it turns out the right decision when we are economically speaking.
