Polling people for an opinion such as whether to impeach Obama is meaningless. Those polled do not often have all the information to make an informed decision, so what good does a poll do other than make the public look like they actually are, uninformed sheep. I include myself in that because it is just a human frailty. So do not give to much weight to polls if you are trying to determine accuracy as the input of information has not been made in many with opinions on matters they do not fully comprehend.
We need to eliminate cash physically. It costs us too much to print money and mint coins. But the savings will not just be from the savings in not printing and minting money but from the underground economy. Those people that do not claim income they are paid cash in will now have to. Another biggie is the drug trade – they could no longer hide their transactions and if they do, it is subject to taxation. With today’s electronic society we have the ability to pull this off.
Other than those printers or minters that would be out of a job I do not see much of a down side to this. All transactions would be with a debit or credit card or those still using checks, they could still use checks.
I would love to hear from those that have positive or negative feedback on this possibility.
