Any attempt to create a cashless society here in the UK would just create a barter type system, I imagine that silver and gold, services, and tradeable goods would be bartered and thus avoid taxation and traceability.

I think that would be a damn fine thing to happen so maybe a cashless society would be a good thing.

I wouldn't count on having silver and gold to barter with. From what I have read going back to gold and silver is not likely to work as govt can conficate that too under the respective Banking Act in most countries.

Perhaps what Karen Hudes and other are trying to achieve may work if they can get it up n running.

Policies structured like Obamacare should have taught us ALL how these kinds of scenarios will play out. Obamacare is merely the test run of how to implement legislated purchases on a large scale. "Click-Wrap Agreements" a cashless society will only strengthen similar policies in the future.

Thanks for that, I had not throught of that before. Even if that is not what they actully intended, the social and economic engineers will have certinally noticed that aspect of made note of it for future reference.

If it works once it will work again will be what they are thinking. Then it soon beome a trend then commonplace is how it could go.

Did you know, that the vast majority of individuals earn money by way of the least of their talents? I know a web designer and networks infrastructure consultant whose greatest talent is costume making. I know a book keeper whose true skill is also costume related. I know accountants who are fantastic welders, electricians who are far better woodworkers, bank managers who play guitar better than they ever manage money, and so on and so forth.

The number of people who are free to make the most of their talents, rather than taking jobs they hate for pay packets which demean them and say nothing of their true talents is far greater, than the number of people who make money doing what they were literally born to do, what every fibre of their being demands they spend time and love and effort doing.

If you said to any of those people "I will provide you with the tools, the time, and the living necessary to sustain you in comfort, if you will devote yourself to the thing you are best at, the thing you love" then they would chew your arm off to take that opportunity.

Society would have to be a very different beast, to allow for such freedom and nourishment of the people, but unless a cashless society is also a currency free society, where money does not exist, where a persons ability to eat is guaranteed by their will to do what they are best at, and do it to the very highest standard they can, this could never come to pass. We would all be better off if it did.

That still doesn't address the jobs that "need" to get done that aren't hobbies to anyone. I think you be hard pressed to find someone who's "passion" is to collect garbage or work in a sewage treatment facility.
