The end of money: Imagining a cashless society with author David Wolman
But all that may be changing.
Contributing editor for Wired David Wolman decided to beat everyone else to the punch. In the process of writing his new book The End of Money, Wolman lived a cashless existence for an entire year, and while he ran into some stumbling blocks along the way, the experience only helped support his theory that cash is an outdated mode of commerce.
Friday on Eight Forty-Eight we’ll talk with Wolman about living in a world free from paper bills and coins. Does a society without cash equal a society without privacy? Are there any advantages to living cash-free now? And will the end of currency mean the end of the world?
