Europe Proposes Confiscating Gold, Cash, Bitcoin, And Prepaid Cards To Fight “Terrorist Financing” "Following exceedingly unpopular moves by China and India, the European Commission has now proposed to tighten controls on cash and precious metals — going so far as to allow confiscations of gold and assets — of anyone even believed to be associated with terrorism or terrorists.

These confiscations and strictures around personal wealth would be part of the European Union’s “action plan against terrorist financing,” proposed following the terrorist attacks on Paris in November 2015 — except the impetus to apply the measures came when a truck plowed through a bustling Christmas market in Berlin on December 19, killing 12 people and injuring scores more.

It appears the Commission surreptitiously proposed tighter controls on cash and precious metals after the market attack but in just before the holidays — possibly to avoid an acrimonious backlash." http://www.activistpost.com/2016/12/europe-proposes-confiscating-gold-cash-bitcoin-prepaid-cards-fight-terrorist-financing.html #Bitcoin #Europe #PreciousMetals #Terrorism #Cash #PrepaidCardshttp://www.activistpost.com/2016/12/europe-proposes-confiscating-gold-cash-bitcoin-prepaid-cards-fight-terrorist-financing.html

The European Union has once again been confronted with a major terror attack, and is coming down harsh on cash, gold and other valuables as a response.

A crackdown on the cash economy is an attack on the poor and a reward for banks


In short, the government cannot use the pretext of clamping down on an industry which is presently illegal by claiming the cash transactions facilitates the existence and growth of it when it is the government’s own criminalisation policy which brought it into existence.
[…]

So, despite the government’s incessant pressure for recipients [of welfare programs] to work, people either remain unemployed on welfare, or work and have their payments severely cut or ended. Recipients can escape this by working in the cash economy and not declaring their earnings.

Other problems abound if the government were to abolish high-denomination bank notes and restrict cash payments above a specified amount, such as $1,000.
One is privacy. By forcing the public to use electronic payments, their activities and whereabouts can be tracked. Given the growth of the surveillance state and intelligence-industrial complex, this is a real infringement upon freedom and privacy if the authorities access this bank data.

This policy is also designed to generate inefficiency by forcing dependence on the banking and financial system. Where previously transactions may have been efficiently conducted in cash, the public are forced to use electronic payments, inserting a third party into the transactions: banks – to their benefit.
Worse, this move against cash makes it easier for the RBA to implement negative interest rates in a significant economic downturn to bail out the banking system. It would become almost impossible for the public to take their savings and other liquid assets out of the banking system as cash to protect themselves from being charged for having savings.

World Says YES to #Cash

THE WORLD SAYS YES TO CASH!

Good news on the #banksters' #Orwellian push for a #cashless #world:

#Guardian: #German plan to impose limit on cash transactions met with #fierce #resistance

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/feb/08/german-plan-prohibit-large-5000-cash-transactions-fierce-resistance

“It would be fatal if citizens got the impression that cash is gradually taken away from them.” -- Bundesbank President Weidman.

"In Germany, such measures clash with deeply engrained habits and #social attitudes. According to a recent Bundesbank study, 79% of payments in #Germany are made in cash – compared with only 48% in #Britain. Even among 14- to 24-year-olds, two-thirds say they prefer paying in cash to electronic means. In a YouGov survey, 72% of Germans said they considered it safer to pay in cash."

As #War on Cash #Escalates, Cash #Lovers Fight Back

http://wolfstreet.com/2016/02/18/war-on-cash-escalates-cash-lovers-fight-back-germany-japan/

"Germany’s neighbor to the south, #Austria, has similar reservations about the #EU’s plans to #suppress cash. The Deputy #Economy Minister Harald Mahrer recently said that #Austrians should have the constitutional right to #protect their #privacy."

“We don’t want someone to be able to track digitally what we buy, eat and drink, what books we read and what movies we watch,” Mahrer said on Austrian #public #radio station Oe1. “We will fight everywhere against rules” including caps on cash purchases, he said.

"Meanwhile, in tech-obsessed #Japan, the country that first popularized mobile wallets and smartphones, cash is king. It is offered and excepted reverentially even when paying for groceries. Every ¥10,000-note is treated with utmost care. As a rule, they’re pristine. Demand for cash remains solid, to the increasing consternation of global credit card companies. In a 2013 report, MasterCard estimated that 38% of the total value of the country’s retail transactions were in cash. That’s almost twice the rate in the U.S. and five times the rate in #France."

#Greek #Attempt To #Force Use Of #Electronic #Money Instead Of Physical Cash #Fails

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-02-21/greek-attempt-force-use-electronic-money-instead-physical-cash-fails

"The #government has told taxpayers that they will have to spend up to a certain amount of their incomes via bank and card transactions in order to qualify for an annual tax-free exemption."

"Greek businesses are not ready for the expansion of #plastic #money through the compulsory use of credit and debit cards for everyday transactions....an estimated half of all businesses do not have card terminals. "

In the United States Cash Continues to Play a Key Role in Consumer Spending: Evidence from the Diary of Consumer Payment Choice

http://www.frbsf.org/cash/publications/fed-notes/2014/april/cash-consumer-spending-payment-diary

"Evidence from the Diary of #Consumer Payment Choice (DCPC), conducted in October 2012 by the Boston, Richmond, and San Francisco Federal Reserve Banks suggests otherwise. Not only is cash a very different payment instrument than checks, but consumers choose to use cash more frequently than any other #payment instrument, including debit or credit cards. Cash plays a dominant role for small-value transactions, is the leading payment instrument for many types of purchases, and stands as the key alternative when other options are not available."

"In October 2012, the average American consumer had 59 transactions, including purchases and bill payments, and 23 of these 59 payments involved cash."

German plan to impose limit on cash transactions met with fierce resistance

Proposals to ban payments above €5,000 have been condemned in country where 79% of transactions are in cash

English pravda.ru: EU to get rid of cash - new economic totalitarian regime

Brussels is going to bring about new steps in order to cope with the debts of European bank reserves. It decided not to undertake any further reforms to tackle the existing economic problems but rather to get rid of all cash. To maintain the euro, they must maintain the banks.
