I'm new to ATS and I only signed up to get other peoples' views on my idea.
I think the new stage of currency is upon us, a world currency called "Credit".
Chances are your parents own a credit card, the majority of adults nower days own atleast one of them.
I think that we are slowly being weaned (pardon the spelling) off physical money, and onto a system where "virtual" money is used.
If you think about it, it would be much more convenient to not have to carry around loose change in your pocket, alot less money will be lost through
the stupidity of some people that cant look after money, eg losing it, tearing it etc.
Credit cards are aparently safer, no-one can access your money without knowing your pin, which makes them pointless to steal unless you have the owner
at knife point at a cash machine.
I for one am excited about this new age, however there are some doughts and concerns I have.
No cash - This means that people will become more dependent on the people and computer systems that look after their money/credit.
Unemployment - People actually employed to make the money will be out of a job, and currency manufacturing is a big industry with millions of
employees. We won't need those factories or employees anymore.
My biggest fear is the people controlling my credit, and because this is on the New World Order forum, I put to you the situation when banks start to
expand, and merge, and eventually, there could be one world bank, looking after the majority of the world's population's credit.
Who controls that credit, who would be right at the top of that bank? If you think about it, he/she controls the worlds money, it would be a lot
easier to blackmail the world's population. This person could end up potentially ruleing the world no?
Please tell me if this isnt in anyway possible, please give me your thoughts
I think credit currency is a great idea, but if the world's banks merge into one mega bank, I'm running for the hills! lol
Whats this I hear about Microchips they can put in your hand or your wrist? Can carry all of your information including family history? Sounds like
a mark of the Beast to me! lol Future credit cards?
Give Me Your Thoughts Please!
P.S Sorry if this has already been debated because I havn't seen it before!
