Easy Money is a multiple Bill Switch created by Patrick Page where, with just a rub, four pieces of paper change into actual money.

P.B.: Actually, I'm not able to find when Page created his effect. In Pabular, Vol. 5, no. 7, July 1979, page 709, Pat Page writes:

"Ali is just back from Japan and he dropped me a line which arrived today, enclosing the Japanese version of an old effect of mine. “Easy Money” it was called. I don’t know what the Japanese manufacturer calls his version, but as he didn’t pay me anything for the rights to manufacture it. . .for him. . .it is easy money."
