The Minnow would be lost

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port,
Aboard this tiny Ship.
- "The Ballad of Gilligan's Island", written by Sherwood Schwartz and George Wyle
The Ludwig von Mises Institute has an article on the monetary system of Gilligan's Island, answering the burning question - why do people still accept the Professor's dollars when there's no government on the island to back up the money?
