It should come as no surprise that the “workers’ paradise” of Sweden is the first country in the declining West (thanks to the establishment of mixed economies) to implement the Rothschild-Rockefeller dream of a cashless society. (“No Virginia—or should I say Ingrid?—those electronic entries in your Swedish bank account are not representative of gold, silver, or any other real commodity.”)
As usual, the “excuse” given for this—or any other—eventual One World Government/Global Cashless Currency move is based on fear. In the case of Sweden, it’s the fear of being robbed.
“The Swedish Bankers’ Association says the shrinkage of the cash economy is already making an impact in crime statistics. The number of bank robberies in Sweden plunged from 110 in 2008 to 16 in 2011 — the lowest level since it started keeping records 30 years ago. It says robberies of security transports are also down. “Less cash in circulation makes things safer, both for the staff that handle cash, but also of course for the public,” says Par Karlsson, a security expert at the organization.” [And easier for the central Banksters to inflate the Swedish money supply for their own advantage.]
