DETAILS
There is a strong push on the part of card companies & somemerchants to eliminate cash in retail, citing reduced transaction times, crime,and worker headcount. But could cashless commerce deprive millions of unbankedcustomers from access to food & other goods & services? States andmunicipalities are starting to push back with proposals to restrict cashlesscommerce in New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia & San Francisco.
We'lluse this latest skirmish as a starting point for a discussion on the ongoingbattle for financial inclusion. What is the current status of efforts to providefinancial services to the unbanked? Will mandating the acceptance of cash helpor hurt these effort?
