Untraceable cash transactions are awfully nice
using cash is one of the last freedoms we have left. People really ought to start using cash as much as possible. A friend of mine owns a business and the card company charge him a few percent every time a customer pays with his credit card.
There are many places where they will only accept credit or debit cards now.
Everything is being monitored.
Some banks now are requiring new accounts that are opened to have direct deposit. There are only a few places of business left that give paper checks to their employees.
Western Union is trying to phase out cash transactions. They are now working with MasterCard attempting to normalize card transactions.
This year, when my teenage son got his income tax return of $150, he was sent a VisaCard with that amount. It is reloadable, so they will use it next year to give him his return.
They now have little swipe devices for iPhones to do business with. That way small businesses don't have to deal with cash.
I actually think some of the saints have foreseen a time when people could no longer use money to buy things. If that is so, this is how that will happen.
More and more places are going to phase out cash. Soon you will HAVE to use a card for everything. If you don't, you won't be able to buy anything. It will probably happen over the next decade.
