Integral cashless payment transactions
The policy of the government is to rearrange the society to such a degree so that all transactions eventually will be executed cashless. With this policy the government strives to attain the following goals :
– Combating money laundering
– Overseeing the flows of money
– Keeping track of moneyflows by the IRS
– Making black markets unprofitable
Through overseeing all flows of money the government attains a new big weapon against everyone who tries to make a transaction outside the rules of the dutch government.
The freedom to make your own choices.
Opponents of this government policy argue that we should cherish the liberal foundations of our society. They compare this political development to a communistic policy that would fit even in the russia of stalin. There should be a healthy balance between cashless and cashpayments.
