Forecast at Hoover Monetary Policy Insider Conference: Cashless Economy is Coming to the U.S.

Ken Rogoff 
Harvard economist Ken Rogoff was a featured speaker at the "Strategies For Monetary Policy: A Policy Conference" held at the Hoover Institution on the campus of Stanford University last week Friday.

Rogoff, the author of  The Curse of Cash, is leading the elitist establishment push for a cashless economy.

At the conference, filled with major insiders and many top Federal Reserve Board officials, he told the group that he expects to see the first totally cashless country in five years. He said it will be a relatively small country. He said a large country will go cashless within 10 years (a large European country or possibly Japan) and that the United States will eventually follow.

This is all because they want to be able to charge negative rates on cash when they think it is necessary.

"No country has really done negative rates in the way that I think I'm talking about," Rogoff said.

  1. Doesn't a cashless society make us all slaves to the banking cartel?
    What happens after a major power disruption? How will people get access to their funds?
