Instead of having $1, $5, $20, $50, and $100 bills, why not use a $1.44 bill or a $50.73 bill or a $103.89 bill? No spare change necessary!?

Why not have a bill for every amount of money possible??

    100 times as many bills as we have now? What's the chances you'd happen to have a bill of the right denomination if you make a purchase, or that you could even find it if you did?

    Every time the Tax changes, you would have to come up with a whole set of different bills.

    You're allowed to "write your own amount" when you pay with a check. Otherwise, you're stuck with credit/debit or the annoying choice of denominations that the local treasury has come up with (e.g., in the USA we have $1,2,5,10,20, etc).

    Because there would be thousands of different bills and you usually wouldn't have the exact right one, so change would still be necessary.

    We do with debit.

    Use a credit card instead. Makes more sense than having cash notes of any denomination

    I'm pretty sure those are called checks.

    You’re an idiot. 

    We already do. It’s called a credit card.

    its just not economically reasonable. already the cost of printing money is higher than its own value. in your system if we made a bill for every amount, first it would have to be an infinite amount, or second it would just be like credit cards which are pretty much what your thinking of anyways
