Do you feel the US will become a cashless society in the not so far off future?  If you are in another country, how do you feel about the possibility there? 2. Are you or would you be comfortable using your phone to pay for your goods and services? What concerns do you have about using this method of payment? 3. With the popularity of using phones to "do it all", what effect will it have on the smart phone industry and consumers in general? 4. Have there been changes in the manner in which you pay for your goods and services? 5. Are cryptocurrencies better suited to a cashless society than national currencies, or can they exist side by side in digital space? 6. Do you agree with the promoters of 100% cashless society that certain types of crime will disappear, made irrelevant or impossible by the lack of physical, easily transferable money?  If not, what do you see happening with crime related to money? 7. Does the irreality of digital payment separate the value from money, since there is no tangible result to your work or service?  Are we sophisticated enough to maintain the illusion of value in something that doesn't exist in the real world? 8. Could a cashless society actually be a step in the direction of a jobless society, where goods and services will be exchanged directly rather than using the "middleman" of money, and necessities will be provided by society to all its members in the interest of social stability and respect for human rights? Please remember to watch at least a few videos before you arrive since we’ll be discussing them when we begin. Once the hangout begins, everyone will introduce each other and then take turns asking the provided questions in order to keep the discussion on topic. Hangouts typically last 90 minutes, and once the hangout is over you will have the opportunity to add people to your buddytree to organize private hangouts and develop friendships. As always, these hangouts provide the opportunity for a thoughtful, respectful and engaging discussion in a safe space where disrespectful behaviour is not tolerated.
