I still do not understand how a society could go cashless since so many people live “off the grid” and so much economic transaction occurs at a very one-foot level. I have my card for most transactions, but people with no credit carry cash. Will people with no Internet access (poor homes with no working computers) have to do their transactions at the library’s public apparatus?
I do not believe anything like this would happen overnight simply because government doesn’t work that way. They stick their tow in the water and see how much squawking there is first. This is why politicians vote for more efficient cars but place deadlines 15 years away. They get credit for doing the right thing, and automakers can raise issues later. (“That standard is going to have these consequences.”)
