    Everyone uses a debit card now. The only professions that would take a hit are strip clubs and drug dealers.

    I always carry cash and still use it way more than my debit card.

    Small businesses are going cash only because credit card companies keep raising thier rates.

    we still get hundreds of checks at the bank for deposit or people cashing them.
    but cash is safer to use.

    i'm old fashioned. i believe how i spend my money is no bodies bidness but mine. i use cash on some things and debit card on normal stuff.

    i bought and sold a lot of this and that over the decades. it would be much harder these days to stay under the wire. everybody being able to record and video without any indication...berry scary.

    There will always be a segment of the population that doesn't want to be tracked...

    When you want the government to be able to track your every dollar it will be time to do away with cash. Right now it's fine, if you want to use it go ahead, if not have a field day with your debit and credit cards. I use all 3.

    Also if you want to tip someone it would suck. like at a wedding with an open bar, or a car valet, or airport baggage handler or furniture delivery guy, etc. I tip nigga. cash.
