I believe there will be a push by big stores NOT to accept cash, but debit cards only. It's already a preference in many places here. So cash may not
end up king. It's coordinated corporate control.
Also, those that are feeling the squeeze most are those who have probably spent a lot of their lives taking things for granted, having someone else
pay for things and having what they want rather than what they need. NO sympathy here.
I live in France and can honestly say, in the twenty years I've been here, shopping at the budget but sensible end for food, drink and regular living
expenses has not changed as much as brand name shopping, luxuries, treats and entitlements. Energy prices the same, like fuel, electric, gas and even
water, I apply the same logic.
Trading and bartering, growing, sharing and planning will be the key asset to make it through any hard times, not cash or money in a bank.
