  1. Hi,

    Truly bringing cash is riskier than cards. Yes its more convenient to pay with credit cards etc. its just that we tend to over spend when we use credit cards and that’s the main reason why I prefer cash that cards… every money that goes out is budgeted.

  2. I too see both sides of the argument, but my general feeling is that consumers are leaning more and more toward cash-less. Mobile payment options are only going to grow.

    • Robert: I see that we will do more mobile payments in the future. iZettle is a good example of that. The thing is that we have to understand the real meaning of money and go back to an objective standard like gold or silver. Otherwise we will end up with the Fed’s printing press, running amok with worthless fiat paper money…

      Have you learned from the history how much purchasing power silver has against paper currency? For example, how much would you gas would you get for 1 troy ounce silver dollar compared with 1 dollar bill, ten years ago and today?

  3. Cash is King and silver is argentum, i.e, real money. I look forward to the day when I can pay with my favorite coin, the American Silver Eagle $1. Have you done that in Nevada?

    Anita: Thanks for the link to Community Merchants USA. I will check out this site.

  4. Carrying cash is way riskier than carrying your cards. Most of the people love to pay using cards and it’s true that more money is spent when a card is used. But more people are heading towards mobile payment and I believe soon it’s going to be the first choice of customers.

  5. Hmm. I wonder why the law/credit processing agreements allow for discounts to be offered for cash purchases? What’s the motive? Is it a way of keeping real money circulating within the economy?
