Hello. I was thinking about this cashless society thing, and reading that you have to pay some bridge tolls and parking with a mobile phone now. Not very good for people like me who don't embrace all the latest technology. I still want to pay cash for most things.
I think we could have a cashless society if we all went back to bartering, skill swapping, and exchanging goods and services with each other. We could all join LETS, a system of community credits. People earn LETS credits by providing a service, and can then spend the credits on whatever is offered by others on the scheme. I'm not sure if that would work for everyone, so I think we are stuck with earning money and spending money.
I've made a video about my thoughts on a cashless society. Please excuse the gormless look on my face. You get a choice of three thumbnails, and they are all awful.
How do you prefer to pay for goods and services? Could you manage without cash?
The fireworks are going off all around me, but we are snug in our lovely home. The cats are sleeping through it all.
Thanks for popping in, enjoy your Sunday, we'll catch up soon.
