"The urge to save mankind is almost always a false front for the urge to govern." ~ H. L. Menken
The short story is that American banking and government institutions are partnering with a global do-or-die ultimatum to move all countries from cash to digital money. The ultimatum is that if a country does not play ball cooperating, it loses in trade because digital will become the default platform.
Quietly, India has been chosen to launch the campaign. The so-called financial inclusion campaign that started in India on November 9, 2016 is anything but that. Additional promotional language indicates the goal of creating a "holistic ecosystem approach" to solve the problems of merchants and customers limited by cash-only systems. Translation: Think … Big Brother.
This well-thought-out globalist plan was not just an original idea of Indian Prime Minister Modi.
"In early November, without warning, the Indian government declared the two largest denominations invalid, abolishing more than 80 percent of the cash in circulation by value. This is surprising because Washington's role has only been disguised superficially. " ~ Norbert Haering, Global Research, January 1, 2017
The shock and the resulting difficulties are palpable since India is one of the the most countries dependent on a cash economy, especially for the millions of very poor. Overnight, more than 80% of the value of cash in circulation was mined, canceling all banknotes of 500 and 1,000 rupees. Today, street vendors and the poor in general are suffering more and more. India has become the harbinger of a guinea pig of a cashless future, turned as an effort towards new economic opportunities. But … for whom?
The main partnership with the country of India is the Indian Ministry of Finance and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). the Beyond the money report is their source document (globalinnovationexchange.org/beyond-cash) but it doesn't stop there. To extend and execute digital payment in India, the United States / India partnership introduced Catalyst: "Inclusive Cashless Payment Partnership" "to digitize savings" and make "daily cashless purchases". (cashlesscatalyst.org)
Unsurprisingly, the war on cash was launched primarily by payment service providers. Their plan, of course, is to make more money directly from digital payments or downstream of data, which also benefits governments. Some of the biggest players are the Better Than Cash Alliance, the Gates Foundation (Microsoft), Omidyar Network (eBay), the Dell Foundation Mastercard, Visa and the Metlife Foundation.
In 2012, the aforementioned umbrella organization, Better Than Cash Alliance (betterthancash.org), was created with the signature: Switching from cash to digital payments to improve people's lives. With generous donors, the Gates-Foundation and the Master-Card-Foundation, its members are large American institutions: MasterCard, Visa, Ford Foundation, USAID, Gates Foundation, Omidyar Network of eBay-founder Pierre Omidyar, and Citi, for name only a few of its 35 members.
Here. It is only a matter of time until we hear about the next country with a fate similar to that of the most unhappy Indians. Will big dogs continue to use the surprise attack strategy to make sure no one messes up their campaign? Momentum built in the interest of the international business community to eliminate cash, increase digital payments, and expand the ability of payment service providers and mega-businesses to track every penny you spend . Are you ready for the "financial inclusion" of a "holistic ecosystem approach" to improve your life? Ha!
