Simone Wapler – La Chronique Agora (France) –
The results of the European Commission’s investigation show a strong resistance to the disappearance of cash.
It is dangerous to ask people for their opinion because often it turns out that they think wrong. “Thinking wrong” means not going in the direction of the evolution desired by the authorities.
Germany: € 5,000 Italy: € 3,000 Spain and France: 1 000 € Greece: € 500 In January 2017 the European Commission announced that it was considering imposing an upper limit on cash payments as early as 2018. This limit already exists in most countries and the trend is decreasing.
Clearly, these limits are not enough; The European Commission would like to push them down faster.
For the sake of legitimacy, the Commission has launched a public consultation, the Results have just been published here.

A targeted awareness program is needed to avoid suspicions about cash; In particular, that the authorities seek to control all aspects of people’s lives, including the use of their money, or to push savings to banks“.
Would the message have gone away? Multinationals from the private sector are taking over to cash obsolete. For example, Visa is offering $ 10,000 to restaurants that cashless. The company proposes to upgrade all payment terminals.
“We are focusing on eliminating the cash Of trade, “said Visa General Manager Al Kelly. Note the warrior terms of our benevolent private or governmental bureaucracy: “war against the cash“,” Eliminate “.
But there is a danger that our great planners may face …
If, by will or by force, the company cash Is established and generalized, then cyber-currencies and cryptomonies, uncontrolled by governments, have a bright future ahead. Bitcoin in the lead …[Editor’s note: How do these cyber currencies work, how can they help you, how to get them: All is here!
