The latest articles about the virus surviving up to 28 days on modern bank notes seem to fit this narrative/plan as well.
Barter still exists. And there will be more, I think, if they get rid of cash.
Cash will be here for the foreseeable future. Today the main electricity cable into the trading estate my daughters factory is on,was cut through by a JCB. That was 7.30 am. 4 pm today still not live! She says they have lost almost a million pounds worth of production today! And that is one out of several hundred factories and units up there. No microwave for warming lunch, so out to the burger van and convenience store on the edge of the estate...and they are only taking cash!
Yes, misleading, but it will still be used as an excuse. And that even though it wouldn't be too difficult to introduce systems to counter it.
We've been pretty consistent throughout this; don't want our cash, lose the business, that simple. But other places are the opposite.
