October 12 - Sweden is close to
becoming a cashless society
Article: Technology For A Global Monetary System
Four out of five purchases in Sweden are made electronically or by debit card. With the development of cheaper technology, the country is moving towards a cash free society, according to a new report. "Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia leads the world in terms of cashless trading," said Bengt Nilervall at the Swedish Federation of Trade (Svensk Handel).
Swedes use their debit and credit cards almost every day - an average of 260 transactions per person per year.
Arvidsson argued that Sweden could become completely cash free but predicts that this development is unlikely until at least 2030. "The familiarity of cash in the hand could prevent this. A recent Sifo survey showed that 2/3 people consider (the availability of) cash to be a human right," he said.
