In Sweden, a Cash-Free Future Nears

from NYTimes:

Parishioners text tithes to their churches. Homeless street vendors carry mobile credit-card readers. Even the Abba Museum, despite being a shrine to the 1970s pop group that wrote “Money, Money, Money,” considers cash so last-century that it does not accept bills and coins.

Few places are tilting toward a cashless future as quickly as Sweden, which has become hooked on the convenience of paying by app and plastic.

This tech-forward country, home to the music streaming service Spotify and the maker of the Candy Crush mobile games, has been lured by the innovations that make digital payments easier. It is also a practical matter, as many of the country’s banks no longer accept or dispense cash.

At the Abba Museum, “we don’t want to be behind the times by taking cash while cash is dying out,” said Bjorn Ulvaeus, a former Abba member who has leveraged the band’s legacy into a sprawling business empire, including the museum.

Not everyone is cheering. Sweden’s embrace of electronic payments has alarmed consumer organizations and critics who warn of a rising threat to privacy and increased vulnerability to sophisticated Internet crimes. Last year, the number of electronic fraud cases surged to 140,000, more than double the amount a decade ago, according to Sweden’s Ministry of Justice

Older adults and refugees in Sweden who use cash may be marginalized, critics say. And young people who use apps to pay for everything or take out loans via their mobile phones risk falling into debt.

“It might be trendy,” said Bjorn Eriksson, a former director of the Swedish police force and former president of Interpol. “But there are all sorts of risks when a society starts to go cashless.”

    ” We need to institute a cashless system by 2016″ – David Rockefeller (2013/14)

    Isn’t it interesting “They” always roll out their agenda starting usually in Europe or Malaysia.In the US it’s almost always in California then it moves East.
    Their cashless system will most likely begin in card form,much as the current debit card,no more cash.It will then evolve towards the Biometric Tattoo.

    Nick Rockefeller tells Aaron Russo in their talks/discussions that “They” have planned for a cashless system along with “Chipping” everyone.

    It is on the way and will be arriving much quicker than most can imagine today.When Chaos arrives,and it will, things have a way of moving very,very quickly.”They” are telling the masses what their plan(s) is and yet there is still a lack of understanding.

    “A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”- Aldous Huxley

    Am 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

    Re 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
    Re 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Da 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

    Mt 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

      Re 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell,…
      (But the bible does NOT say ANYTHING about WOMEN who will be buying, selling, and TRADING the OLDEST profession in the world.)

      And when everybody gets “Chipped”, it won’t work when the POWER GRID goes down. Duh.

      Can’t tax Vagina, eh Mr. Gary Glitter? Ain’t no “666” number required to trade in some fuzzy-wuzzy-fun stuff. It’s been that way, even before the Bible was Babbled.

      Mt. 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.???

      (Yeah, just don’t put any Iron Chariots up against God, because he seems to have a big problem with those things, can’t beat them when they are driven by a bunch of SHEEP herders down in the valley.) Judges 1;19.
      ————–

      Or please tell me, how are we to rely on an “All Powerful God” who has never had the power to heal even a SINGLE AMPUTEE by growing a NEW hand or foot from the stump? He can do everything, but NO match for a modern hospital that can re-attach severed fingers, toes, hands, feet, new hearts, heart valves, liver, kidneys, corneas, and restart a stopped heart with a Defibrillator.

      It’s really suspicious how some “no show” deity gets all the praises but it’s the local doctors and nurses who do all the real work?

      All that really nice flowery talk, but NO results is not good enough. Thousands of years, and no action that I can see.

      How about changing this glass of WATER into a POUND of GOLD? Now that’s something I can SEE, touch and believe in. Something of SUBSTANCE, and not just empty words or smoke and mirrors.

      Strange stories from 2000 years ago? And he’s SO wonderful, in that he ALLOWS a daddy to SELL his little daughter into SEX SLAVERY, sell people from across the border to be sold as slaves, and SO many other wonderful, moral things.

      So, we are supposed to love, obey and appreciate this God, but how do all those GIRLS appreciate being SOLD as a SEX SLAVE just because GOD said it’s OK? Do you think they have the same opinion of him as they are getting screwed by some big, fat, ugly old men for a few bucks so her “pimp” can drive a new Cadillac? Look it up, it’s the SAME God.

    By making “money” electronic, and ONLY electronic, the Western International Central Bankers (i.e., Int’l Ashkenazi-Khazarian Mafia) intend to make their rulership over everything and everyone on the planet – PERMANENT. It’s not the “New” World Order, it’s the “Jew” World Order, and it’s been picking up steam for CENTURIES, now.

    America will never be 100% cashless. How will politicians be paid off with no paper trail? There will always some cash in circulation. It’ll be frowned upon maybe, and it’s use discouraged but as long as there is a black market, and there always will be, there will be cash. Or some form of physical, intraceable currency.

    • Christine

      Common sense 101. Can’t do without cash and can’t do without barter. Ask yourself: who would cashless be directed to? Only those playing by the rules. Whose rules?

  • Millicent

    Try to tell the people in SE Asia that they are going to have to go Cashless… good luck with that. 90%+ of all business conducted on a day-to-day basis is done in cash.

  • Craig Escaped Detroit

    Cash will never be gone as long as the CIA needs to keep the DRUG trade going, both from “south of the border” and all the World wide Heroin trade that grows out of Afghanistan.

    The TRILLIONS of dollars for the BLACK budgets (and don’t forget how Wall street Banks in USA & UK would go bankrupt if not for all the drug money.)

    Even the Bible says that everybody will be using Gold & Silver at some point. (How else could everybody eventually be throwing their gold & silver into the streets if they were not actually all using it?)

    So, if we are to believe those ancient (2000 year old goat herder stories that never yet came true), perhaps the one of everybody using gold and silver will be the one that comes true after we all get sick and tired of FIAT.

    If faith was a factual real thing that proves something, then 1.5 billion muslims would be the winner in everything, and the 1.6 billion Hindus would be right. Poor old Christians would come in a distant 4th place after the Buddhists too. ALL those other people have FULL faith in their own Gods, and for the Hindus & Buddhists, is well beyond 3000 years and still going.

    I’d think that any real God, would have finally attended a few meetings, eh? Moses heard the burning bush? You do know that it was an Acacia shrub, don’t you? The one that is known as a hallucinogenic drug? Pretty intense experience, eh?

    Drugs have always been part of global religious experience by holy men and shamans all over the world. DMT, Weed, Peyote, Mandrake, Acacia, Mushrooms, and SO many others, both known and unknown. Only in modern times has this important spiritual key been demonized.

    Of course, if it can be used a big money gathering tool by the world elites, to fund their controls over us, then only the LOW level hoodlums ever get busted. Never happens to Presidents, Kings and Generals or banksters.
