The End of Money
Counterfeiters, Preachers, Techies, Dreamers-- and the Coming Cashless SocietyBook - 2012
The story of hard currency-- its history, conflicts, champions, detractors, and eventual demise. As the role of bills and coins in our everyday lives and in the economy lessens, real money is becoming not merely an abstraction, but an abstraction of an abstraction. What will an increasingly cashless future mean for society, and for the people whose careers are linked to the production, management, and collection of hard currency? This is their story, but it is also our story-- because the fate of real money impacts all of our wallets.
