Cashless Transactions

By now, readers are familiar with the decision by Indian Prime Minister Modi to make the most popular bank notes illegal. The equivalent of a $20 bill and $10 bill (1,000 Rupees and 500 Rupees) were declared by the Indian government to be no longer legal tender.

This set off a wave of panic in India with bank notes being exchanged for less than face value and gold selling for $500 per ounce above the world price. Banks were closed, ATMs had to be reprogrammed, businesses shut down, and money riots broke out in some places.

Throughout this episode, analysts were asking why Modi made such a disruptive and costly move. Now the answer has been revealed.  You can read in this article that Modi said he wants India to be a cashless society. He said, “Over the last three weeks, I have made a strong appeal for increased cashless transactions. … Today we live in an era of mobile banking and mobile wallets. … I am sure most of you are using cards and e-wallets regularly but I thought I must share with you ways through which increased cashless transactions are possible.”

In other words, Modi does not just want to attack the black market, he wants to move India to a 100% cashless society so that government can control every aspect of citizens’ lives by its chokehold on the digital banking system. India is among the first to be so explicit about their plans. It will not be the last.

The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
