RE: Sweden to go 100% cashless making it ILLEGAL to own physical money

If I were a Sweede, I'd be moving my funds to US Dollars for anything in excess of what I need for daily expenses.

US banks suffer from far higher regulation and oversight.

Late to the curve as usual...for the commentators. Armstrong was reporting that they were wanting to do this years ago.

So what are the best stores?

Is the consensus alcohol, guns, and utility items (lighters) among other things?

I was thinking about stacking up on the dwindling supply of Scotch, anyway (single malts, that is)

This is true, but the US Dollar will continue to be a great hedge currency.

I searched and didn't see a "cash ban" thread but this was the closes one to it.

India just banned notes 500 Rs and higher. 500 Rs is worth about $7 USD.

Their reasons: "black market", "corruption", and "fake currency."

They also limited ATM transactions to 2000 Rs (about $28 USD).

The thing that makes this especially outragous is in India the vast majority of transactions are still in cash and many people do not even have bank accounts.

So Sweden may become the first country whose citizens may have to accept negative interest rates (probably in the form of higher bank charges or fees) or be forced to spend their money to "save" it from those rates. A resistance is forming, and some people are protesting the impending extinction of cash. Björn Eriksson, former head of Sweden's national police and now head of Säkerhetsbranschen, a lobbying group for the security industry, told The Local, "I've heard of people keeping cash in their microwaves because banks won't accept it."

Is there anything that the Swedish people will NOT accept? What a dickless bunch of lemmings for crying out loud. I swear, if those feminists would pass a law that all Swedish men would have to slam their penises with a hammer once per day, the majority of those wankers probably would just comply.

It must be extremely depressing having to live in that country these days. Can you imagine? Plus in the winter there barely is any daylight. The arctic hell of feminism, the law of Jante, Islamic extremism, and now you're being totally at the mercy of corrupt banksters. Sweden is FUCKED.

Ok, nobodies said it yet.

What's to stop the Swedes (if this does happen) simply trading in Euros, Dollars or Pounds? If I was paying day labourers in Sweden, I'd just pay them in Euros.

Because Swedish people are dickless lemmings.

This is still a click-bait story without any grounds in reality. I can refute this by walking out the door and take a short stroll. But hey, don't let that stop your assault on the straw man, if that's what keeping the boogeymonster of the evil socialist state alive.

redpillage, tell me all about your visits to Scandinavia. Because surely you've formed your convictions from having boots on ground rather than just reading some stories online and reacting like a useful idiot running another power's errands?

It's a Swedish plan for the next 5 to 10 years....no one here claimed there is no cash now.

You're right, you claimed that carrying large amounts of cash would get you investigated by the Police. Which is of course untrue, unless you try to make questionable transfers with them which will be subject to scrutiny anywhere in the post-911 world. In fact the US has WAY tougher monitoring of fund transfers committed by their citizens.

And what on earth is a "Swedish Plan"? Who do you imagine are in on this?

No it's pretty real, India banned large cash bills about 2 weeks ago, and their entire country is about to rip itself apart. Their PM Modi has wrecked their entire economy in no time flat by immediately banning large bills, while Australia and a few other countries are experimenting with eliminating large bills to similar disastrous results as well. But right now India is ground zero for this social experiment, and you can damn sure believe banks around the world are watching them with the hopes that they can do the same thing everywhere.

And I believe redpillage has a pretty good handle on Scandinavia Mania, I think he's in Germany or somewhere in Europe, and he has been discussing Swedish craziness in the European Invasion thread for almost 2 years now.

My original post quoted a news article from this source:
http://uk.businessinsider.com/sweden-cashless-society-negative-interest-rates-2015-10?r=US&IR=T

I quoted it, but I did not write that article or make those claims.

What does India have to do with the topic at hand?

My point exactly. There sure are a lot of people good at discussing on the forum. Some will weigh in on any topic, all they need is to read an article by their favorite mouthpiece first.

It's an official government program to eliminate cash completely.

There's nothing in these links supporting what you claim.
One of them even states right at the top how the national bank just issued several new types of notes.
How is this even mentally meshing with all that you just wrote? Did you even read these articles or just took the first hits from google?

OK, i'm not sure anymore if you're just being obtuse on purpose or trying to play Devil's Advocate here...

The topic at hand is banks eliminating cash. India banning most cash is extremely relevant.

I'll let redpillage speak for himself, but i'm fairly certain he's had his boots on the ground in Scandinavia.

I have personally been to Copenhagen, Gothenburg and Stockholm years ago, also Oslo (Norway). Don't speak Swedish or Norwegian but that's really not an issue up there as everyone speaks English. Used to be a great and safe place 25 years ago, now it's a Marxist feminist hellhole.

Since when do I have a credibility issue here and need to justify myself? All my predictions over the past two years have panned out almost exactly. But alright - bitch at the messenger - it won't change realities on the ground. Enjoy your burning cars in Malmö ;-)

Not sure where you're coming from or what your point is, pal - but quite frankly I could give a rat's rectum what you think of me. Disprove or argue against my position, all fair game. DO NOT attack the messenger. Leave that to shit to the SJWs.
