This morning I read a Linked In article discussing Sweden’s attempt at becoming a cashless society – and just thought it was right in step with our course work and would interest some of my DIM colleagues. A New York Times article on the same topic notes that one fifth of Sweden’s 10 million people population no longer use ATMS to withdraw Swedish Krona (SEK). However, Sweden is finding there are implications of going completely cashless. For one – the elderly are being disenfranchised by this attempt at digitalizing currency. There are also privacy and cyber-theft concerns. But it is a really interesting concept that I foresee happening globally in the future.
