    Zero Hedge ^ | 5 Nov 2015 | Tyler
    As central planners the world over grapple with the effective "lower bound" that's imposed by the existence of physical banknotes, there’s been no shortage of calls for a ban on cash. Put simply, if you eliminate physical currency, you also eliminate the idea of a floor for depo rates. After all, if people can't withdraw paper money and stash it under the mattress, then interest rates can be as negative as the government wants them to be in order to "encourage" consumption. If, for instance, you’re being charged 10% for saving your money, then by God you will probably spend...

    Sweden is shaping up to be the first country to plunge its citizens into a fascinating and terrifying economic experiment: negative interest rates in a cashless society. The Swedish central bank, the Sveriges Riksbank, on Wednesday held its benchmark interest rate at -0.35%, the level it has been at since July. Though retail banks have yet to pass that negative rate on to Swedish consumers, they face increased pressure to do so as long as the rates remain where they are. That's a problem, because Sweden is the closest country on the planet to becoming an all-electronic cashless...

This implies two things: (1) Insured patients cannot pay for pain treatment that their insurance supposedly covers but denies in their case. (2) Uninsured patients who are hard up and don't have a checking account or credit cannot buy this type of medical care.

Paying for your bus ticket with a contactless card, putting down plastic in a restaurant or shopthese may be everyday aspects of life in the Anglophone world. But not so in Germany, where remembering to go to the cash point is something many expats have to get used to.

    A proposed new law in Denmark could be the first step towards an economic revolution that sees physical currencies and normal bank accounts abolished and gives governments futuristic new tools to fight the cycle of boom and bust. The Danish proposal sounds innocuous enough on the surface it would simply allow shops to refuse payments in cash and insist that customers use contactless debit cards or some other means of electronic payment. Officially, the aim is to ease administrative and financial burdens, such as the cost of hiring a security service to send cash to the bank, and is...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton will begin personally courting donors for a super PAC supporting her candidacy, the first time a Democratic presidential candidate has fully embraced the independent groups that can accept unlimited checks from big donors and are already playing a major role in the 2016 race. Her decision is another escalation in what is expected to be the most expensive presidential campaign in history. Mrs. Clintons allies hope that with her support, Priorities USA Action, the top Democratic super PAC, will be able to raise as much as $200 million to $300 million, on par with what the largest...

    The move to a cashless society won’t happen overnight. Instead, it is being implemented very slowly and systematically in a series of incremental steps. All over the planet, governments are starting to place restrictions on the use of cash for security reasons. As citizens, we are being told that this is being done to thwart criminals, terrorists, drug runners, money launderers and tax evaders. Other forms of payment are much easier for governments to track, and so they very much prefer them. But we are rapidly getting to the point where the use of cash is considered to be a...

As ordinary Americans we are limited in our ability to visualize and actually get a true understanding of the magnitude of our debt. We hear numbers that start in the hundreds of billions and run to the trillions. These numbers lose their meaning and their impact because of their enormity. The current best guess is that we owe nearly 18 trillion dollars. That much money...

    Police confiscating Americans’ hard earned cash, as well as a wide variety of other valuables, without an arrest or conviction is a disturbing and growing practice throughput these United States. Since cops get to keep the seized funds and use the money on pretty much anything they want, the practice is becoming endemic in certain parts of the nation. The theft is often referred to simply as civil forfeiture, or civil asset forfeiture. Incredibly, under civil forfeiture laws your property is “guilty until you prove it innocent.”The extent of the problem came to my attention last summer after reading an...

    The Canadian government has had to warn its citizens not to carry cash to the USA because the USA does not presume innocence but guilt when it comes to money. Over $2.5 billion has been confiscated from Canadians traveling to the USA, funding the police who grab it. If you are bringing cash to the land of the free, you will find that that saying really means they are FREE to seize all your money under the pretense you are engaged in drugs with no evidence or other charges. It costs more money in legal fees to try to get...

    The fashion police descended in droves on the Los Angeles Fashion District last week, confiscating $100 million (mostly in cash), seizing three homes and arresting nine people. The raids on some 75 businesses are related to Black Market Peso Exchange (BMPE) schemes to launder drug money controlled by international drug cartels.

    I've been getting a lot of email from Democratic fundraisers lately. They seem very worried about November's elections. First came the highly publicized "Impeachment Red Alert" campaign, in which the Democratic congressional committee warned that Republicans will impeach President Obama if they win control of the House and Senate. Though much ridiculed, the Impeachment Red Alert effort was a big winner, pulling in $2.1 million in small donations in a single weekend. Despite that success, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's mood seemed to blacken in subsequent days as she asked for more and more money. The subject line of Pelosi's...

    With roughly two weeks left in the open enrollment period for health insurance, some groups are trying to sell Obamacare to young people in terms they might actually understand: music, comedy, and cash. Young Invincibles, a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C. that is focused on the economic issues affecting young adults, launched a sweepstakes last week where it is awarding a cash prize of $1,200 enough to potentially cover a year's worth of health insurance premiums for a young adult to people who download their health care app or submit a card in the mail. The contest...

    Some HSBC customers have been prevented from withdrawing large amounts of cash because they could not provide evidence of why they wanted it, the BBC has learnt. Listeners have told Radio 4's Money Box they were stopped from withdrawing amounts ranging from 5,000 to 10,000. HSBC admitted it has not informed customers of the change in policy, which was implemented in November. The bank says it has now changed its guidance to staff. New rules Stephen Cotton went to his local HSBC branch this month to withdraw 7,000 from his instant access savings account to pay back a loan from...
