It really would'nt do a thing as far as the drug dealing, criminals are concerned. They will just transfer funds between accounts. Say its a loan or something close to it, and still be getting away with murder.

Its just a matter of time. A couple of weeks ago I read that there was a major adjustment to the UPC bar code system in the US and Canada to add another digit (to make it 14). This was to streamline with Europe which already had 14 digit barcodes. Why would it matter if this weren't part of a bigger plan?

Since I started using a debit card six years ago, I almost never carry cash. I keep some quarters around for laundry and from ten to twenty dollars in jar for my next door neighbor who always wants to borrow money. I like almost never needing cash.
