When cash is outlawed

Here is a very interesting comment by Greek Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou at a press conference:

“From 1. Jan. 2011, every transaction above 1,500 euros between natural persons and businesses, or between businesses, will not be considered legal if it is done in cash. Transactions will have to be done through debit or credit cards”

more: The barrage continues

Could it happen here?

  1. Hmmm.
    It’s all Greek to me.

  2. Who gives a shit if it is “legal” in the eyes of the state if the goods/services change hands at the price agreed upon?

  3. Sounds to me like another way to control the people (socialist/communist).
    or the non-polite way is: bend over sucker with no lubricant!!

  4. <<<remembering the term "cashless society" hmm

  5. Interesting blog and everybody should totally take notice with you on this view here. Its interesting, thats what i should say concerning this post. Because this is what the whole site is all about right? Greetings all!
