Very interesting look at the pros and cons of retaining coins and banknotes as a medium of exchange.
I liked the writing style, I liked that the author has interviewed people in many countries and walks of life, including the very poor.
I have been wondering since 1998 why we can't just put our cellphones together to transfer payments, always presuming it has been because "they" don't like the untraceability of it.
This book goes into such matters, as well as how "they" cream us all with our use of cash.
I liked that the problem of what we do if we are all on electric money and then a disaster disables all the electronic infrastructure, is dismissed as irrelevant because we would be too preoccupied with the basics of food and shelter to worry about it; in an environment like that even cash is worthless anyway.
