No dollar bills in favor of electronic payments or hard (like gold)?

Here's the cons of dollar bills:

1, trees get cut down to be used as paper to make dollar bills (bad for environments and bad for tree usages for lumber to make homes and other nouns);

2, less trackable for obligatory investing;

3, transactions can't be recorded as easily for obligatory investing, and note that obligatory investing in government(s) is what some persons refer to as taxes;

4, can be destroyed by wildfire(s);

5, attracts robber(s) and killers that kill while robbing;

6, usually takes longer to use when spending than an electronic card;

7, deteriorates into dusty land pollution;

8, can be used by persons wanting to impersonate owners of said cash;

9, no Constitutional authority to make paper dollar bills;

10, addictive smell (that encourages people to be greedy and to rob others of dollar bills);

11, paper and inks diverted from other uses like educational supplies (like paper and pens), and that causes said educational supplies costs to increase causing more dollar bills to be printed to purchase said educational supplies (and that "process" keeps repeating until Congressional action is taken;

12, costs $ to make dollar bills paper money;

13, pictures of leaders (on paper dollar bills) promote perhaps narcissisms and perhaps egocentricnesses;

14, costs money of time & guarding & perhaps fuel or electricity to transport;

15, difficult to carry large amounts of money efficiently;

16, bank personnel or burglars or robbers can steal dollar bills that have been deposited into accounts without owners of said accounts instantly knowing about that (if ever if bank personnel are covertly corrupt)

You omitted the biggest con of the Dollar as "payment":

Dollar bills (Federal Reserve Notes) are an instrument of DEBT.

"A dollar (bill) is a receipt for a claim check on an IOU." - Mike Maloney

Oh dear.



LOL

Gold coins represent Wealth.  Dollar bills represent debt.

Debt is the money of slaves.

Thanks for that compliment. Smiley

And yes, electronic cards, that are each used to pay with, are each basically contractual agreements of keeping persons in debt.

I have one that accesses my accounts directly, and another that loans me money all month and pays me for borrowing their money.

You must have different kinds of cards... More likely you are using credit cards to spend money you don't have and aren't likely to get.

Blame yourself if that's what you've done. Fool.

I don't ever use credit cards, and I'm not in debt.
