Don't see any problems with it. Who carries around so much money? And even if the lower it....so what? Credit Cards have been around forever, Online Banking isn't a new thing, a lot of people already live mostly without using paper money and they don't have a problem. The only time i use real money is to buy food and Beverages, everything else i already do online or with Credit/Cash Card

Some of you people are so paranoid. Some of you see the Bogeyman behind every corner. Everything is evil, everything is bad, everything has bad consequences, every government is corrupt, there's a big shady corporation who really runs the world in your mind. I think professional help is needed...


Well maybe the break down on this isn't right, but what about farmer's markets and stores. For example, in the past, working in one, we had days with cash flows that were quite high at times, way beyond that.

How would you deposit it if this is the case?

So this DOES affect the little guy, because no customer could pay with cash if you can't deposit your daily funds.

Easy because when you buy big ticket items like cars or boats you still have to register them. I know someone back in Toronto who made cash from a back room gambling operation and went and bout a Ferarri and Lomborghini with cash.... when he registered them they wanted to know how he could afford them


It will also be hard for the black market to deal in cash if the government eliminates cash... they will have to go back to the old barter system

it's about business transactions, not plain folk like us

Any time someone exchanges goods/services for cash? That equals a business transaction - so the law is for EVERYONE not just 'them.'

Beyond that - it makes no difference if the government bans transactions of one cent - it's still wrong on so many levels it's stick.

Thanks for the heads up OP! S&F!

peace

Well for people that hold mortgages on house you still meed to go through the bank.

However here in Vegas most people cash their paychecks at the Casinos... and they give you free drinks and buffets for the honor of cashing your check... naturally they count on you hanging around awhile and leaving part of that check behind
but you don't have to.

I cash my checks there all the time... get the free dinners... then pay the bank mortgage with cash


Zorgon,
For the sake of Shills and Snoopers, I suggest you do infact spend a large part of your cheque at the tables


PEACE,

your title is very misleading, it's a shame.
you needed some attention?
With an accurate title, like "Spain Bans Cash Transactions Over 2,500 Euros in business transactions" no one would pay attention to your post for sure.
Spain isn't banning cash, Spain is trying to avoid fraud in business. I'm in business for over 20 years now. Never did I pay such an amount of money in cash.


100% agree with you, and ATS itself IS part of a freaking problem, possibly deliberately due to this stupid policy of using the exact headline?

WHY? Because they know darn well the kind of misleading junk that is posted online that is written precisely for the reason to get clicks aka rake in advertising money. Naturally, that is exactly the type of junk they prefer here, even if they won't admit it because it is directly tied to their bottom line, and that is to grow and profit, like any other awful, desperate, and corrupt business. Anything to get paid, is the motto of business!

Despicable policy, but I would bet $100 right now that it will stay the same for as long as this site exists. Anyhow, it's not like they can rely on the majority of these users, teenagers, to know how to write an accurate title! They can too easily stand behind the policy and copy and paste instead of being held responsible for their own work.

That is why this site is overrun with trash! Ain't that the truth!

Cash brings privacy. This is another way for TPTB to monitor your every move. This could bring a quantum leap in the survalience society.

And if you believe in a "new world order," cashless society is a cornerstone of this global tyrrany's plans for Planet Earth.

They claim use only for preserving the Euro (which should not be preserved imho) but this will be generalized to survalience society/one-planet NWO purposes quite easily. If not now, 3 or 5 or 10 years after.

Kick Spain while it is down why don't you?
They know they can do it to Spain because it is hurting so bad and they need to suck more taxes from it to pay for Bailouts to the global banking cartel.

This is ugly news. Today Spain - Tomorrow YOU.

What would you buy with over 2500 Euros anyway? A house? a car? They have other paperwork associated with them anyway. This is just more feel good legislation that doesn't do anything in reality.

Typical over reaction that you see on this site all the time first of all they have not banned cash and here in the UK they have something similar were cash transactions over a certain amount are not allowed to help combat money laundering by crooks!!!!!

The easiest way for crooks to make their money look legitimate is to buy high value items cars houses etc so I don't see a problem with what Spain has done other countries should do the same.

Oh my Lord, I can't believe how naive you are, you should try reading a lot more, to see what exactly is going on in the world around you, and your kind of shopping will stop soon when you are injected with a microchip to go and buy your food, no chip, no food

Doesn't matter if it is only for transactions over €2500. They're using the boiled frog technique.

We all know what the ultimate goal here is - a cashless society. Anyone dare to say it will stay at transactions over €2500 forever?


I totally agree that this is just the beginning but cash is still 'king' here and many Spaniards don't even have bank accounts. Those that are lucky enough to still be employed must have a bank account for their salary but I don't know of anyone that leaves it in the bank. The law here allows businesses to embargo a bank account, without notice, and just take money out, even when money isn't owed. It happens all the time and it's a lengthy and expensive process to try and get that money back so people avoid leaving money in their accounts.

We have a new 'local' currency being used in our town and as there are a lot of small farms here people also swap produce. It will take a long time to get everyone to have an active bank account for transactions.


It comes as no surprise then that Transparency International has listed Spain as more corrupt than Uruguay, Chile and Qatar, and almost on a par with of Botswana – quite a feat for the fourth richest nation in the European Union.

Right on Maya!! ... The type of localised economy you speak of is exactly where people's thinking needs to start being focused towards. To that end, may I wish you and all those around you of similar mind and manner, my most sincere Good Luck!!

please read the article carefully (if you didn't already do so) !

IMO it always starts out in business and then trinkles down into society. We all know the corruption starts at big business so why would the currency be any different? (try not to assume much, it comes off as personal attacks) I can see where this can lead to, not saying that it will, but surely anyone can see where this has the potential to go south fast. BTW TPTB have their hands into everything so I think using the acronym fits appropriately. TPTB is the definition of big business...

It's really funny how governments think that passing a law regarding how sales transactions are made will make any difference. So, OK, over a certain amount, you can't use cash; so what will stop transactions from being broken up into multiple payments? Or just ignoring the law all together?

Last year I bought an old car for $3500 in cash that I had been saving for a while. There was no attempt to defraud the government as I paid for all the taxes on that vehicle and transactions. I also use cash for most out of the ordinary things I purchase: appliances etc. Again, no intent to avoid taxes, I just prefer cash. I pretty much hate banks and only use one because it allows me the ease of paying bills online, and the gov. knows about those anyway.

For the Spanish and other governments to claim this is about recouping taxes from the "underground" economy is pretty disingenuous. For most countries, it is the underground economy and some creative money laundering in high places that keep the economic wheels turning even during a depression.

Gonna be sooner than 3 years, theyre going to do it worldwide in 2 and yes it is all about establishing a one world order. Doesn't matter if you believe in Christ or the book of Revelation the Illuminati Satanists who own the world do and they think their master can win.

the only people who don't like it

I guess you think we should all lose freedom to stop the bad guys out there, a lot of people think like that.

If grandpa wants to stack his mattress with cash because he has reason to hate banks and wants to deal in cash he should be able to do so.

I think your assessment is accurate. In the last 20 years, we have been seeing only the beginning of it.

I feel sorry for our descendants. They will have no memory of a comparatively free society where people had such a thing as privacy.

I don't think this is anything new really, just a coming of times. Canada has a ban on possessing more than 10,000 cash. It stops people from being capable of trafficking gargantuan amounts of drugs and contraband scott free. They get greater control and knowledge of your funding as it all goes through many business hands, and to bust you for not even having anything but cash on you. Mind you, 2500 is a bit steep, but they expect most people to use the banks and make it easier to tax everything you do.
