“Dad, can you lend me a fiver?” in a world without cash

June 20, 2014

“Dad, can you lend me a fiver?”

In a world with cash:

“Yes of course just let me dig through my loose change, there’s always some hanging about in the drawer”

In a world without cash:

“Oh, err, I’ll have to switch the broadband on… hang on a minute the wifi’s down, err… what about my phone… err, the Bluetooth isn’t working again I can’t sync our accounts together… err… where’s that contactless payment card,… err… it won’t let me transfer anything we must be over our limit… err… sorry… ”

“Contactless payment” assumes we all have more money than we need.  Most of us are not in that happy position.

Cash is good!

Now, where did I put that tenner? I must have dropped it somewhere…
