This open access book tells the story of how Sweden is becoming a virtually cashless society. Its goal is to improve readers' understanding of what is driving this transition, and of the factors that are fostering and hampering it. In doing so, the book covers the role of central banks, political factors, needs for innovation, and the stakeholders involved in developing a cashless ecosystem. Adopting a historical standpoint, and drawing on a unique dataset, it presents an academic perspective on Sweden's leading role in this global trend. The global interest in the future of cash payments makes the Swedish case particularly interesting. As a country that is close to becoming a cashless economy, it offers a role model for many other countries to learn from - whether they want to stimulate or reduce the use of cash. This highly topical book will be of interest to politicians, researchers, businesses, financial service providers and payment service providers, as well as fintech start-ups, regulators and other authorities.

A cashless society defines an economic environment in which financial transactions are not performed through money by way of bank currencies or coins, but rather by exchanging digital data (typically an electronic expression of money) between the transacting parties. Cashless societies have had come into being since the time of the evolution of human civilization, based on barter and other trading practices, and cashless transfers have now become viable in modern times, leveraging digital currencies, including bitcoin. However, one tends to explore and focus on the concept of a cashless society in the context of moving towards a society where cash is substituted by its digital counterpart, i.e., legal tender money, which is captured, and only transmitted in digital electronic format. Such a theory has been discussed at length, notably as the world is undergoing a substantial and phenomenal use of digital ways of capturing, controlling, and transacting in trade, investment, and day to day life in several parts all across the globe and transactions that would have traditionally been conducted with cash are now often executed electronically or digitally.

How much do you really know about money? Everyone uses it, but few know how it really works. Most books about money focus on specific aspects. This book breaks through the usual silos to present money as a broad social technology that serves the current needs of society. It reviews the latest developments in financial technology including cryptocurrency, blockchain, and the prospect of a cashless future; and clears up many misconceptions in the process. Starting with a very brief history, the authors provide insights on how money is made; why money has value and what can change its value; how central banks, treasuries, foreign exchange, lending, and blockchain work; why you may be trading against robots; and privacy and security issues in an increasingly cashless society that will change our lives. While written for a broad audience, this book is also essential reading for students entering courses in the area of business finance, or money and banking.

The digital economy is rapidly developing worldwide as the largest driver of innovation, competition, and growth. Even though many people have been excluded, tremendous opportunities are available for the digital economy to support financial inclusion for sustainable economic development. India could see a boost of $700 billion, an 11.8 per cent increase by 2025. This additional GDP could create up to 21 million jobs. McKinsey has estimated that Indians lose more than $2 billion a year in forgone income simply because of the time it takes travelling to and from a bank India aims to create a cleaner, more transparent economy via digitalization that will lead to an improved climate for foreign investment, boost economic growth, and ultimately propel the country to the next chapter of its emerging markets story. The long-term impact will be a paradigm shift to the digital economy. The biggest hindrance to a digital economy is there being a huge information asymmetry between financial services providers and the consumers. Present Government had launched a major drive for financial inclusion in terms of opening Jan Dhan accounts, giving a statutory basis for Aadhaar, implementation of Directs Benefits Transfer, introduction of RuPay Cards and Voluntary Disclosure Scheme for unaccounted money. Demonetization of 500 and 1000 Rs. notes on 8th November, 2016 was another important milestone in this endeavour. Following demonetization, there has been a spurt in the digital payments across the country and both the volume and amount of money transacted through digital methods saw seen manifold increase since 9th November, 2016. P.M. Modi and his government's ministers have been educating people on how to move towards a cashless society. Economic digitization also increases the government's ability to enhance its taxation systems. India's informal economy is responsible for roughly 45% of GDP and 80% of employment, which means that billions of INR are being exchanged each year without the knowledge tax collectors. Currently, only 1% of India's population pays income tax. Demonetization and subsequent initiatives led to greater utilization of card but we don't have enough people with debit or credit cards, and not enough PoS machines to use them. This is apart from not enough people with mobile connections in India who have an Internet connection, a reliable Internet connection, with handsets that support Indian payment apps, and are active online daily? India is a country where 94% of the population is estimated to be in the unorganized sector which draws its payments in cash and only 10% of the population has ever used non-cash means of payments. The BHIM app has been launched. It will unleash the power of mobile phones for digital payments and financial inclusion. But how ready are we to go cashless? How affordable is it for people to go cashless? Is this country ready for complete virtual banking and removing physical cash out of the system? All these points are the main purpose of the book entitled 'India's Readiness for Digital Economy' with comprehensive statistics of present scenario of infrastructure facilities presented in the following chapters. Ch-1: Vision of Digital India Ch-2: Growth of Telecommunication Usage in India Ch-3: IT & ITe'S Industry in India Ch-4: Initiative for Financial Inclusion through Banking Sectors Ch-5: Post Demonetization Scenario Ch-6: India's Initiative towards Digital Economy The book is designed in the simplest form to understand digital economy and assess related infrastructure scenario of India and to be accessible to the people interested in the area.

'A brilliant, fascinating and utterly accessible book... If you want to understand what money is - and what it is in danger of becoming - start right here' KATE RAWORTH, author of Doughnut Economics Many of us rarely use cash these days. And the reach of corporations into our lives via cards and apps has never been greater. But what we're told is natural and inevitable is actually the work of powerful interests: the great battle of our time is for ownership of the digital footprints that make up our lives. Who benefits from a cashless society and who gets left behind? Is the end of cash the end of true privacy? And is a cashless future closer than we think? Cloudmoney tells a revelatory story about the fusion of big finance and tech, which requires physical cash to be replaced by digital money or 'cloudmoney'. Diving beneath the surface of the global financial system, Brett Scott uncovers a long-established lobbying infrastructure waging a covert war on cash, as banking and tech companies promote a cashless society under the banner of progress. From marketing strategies against cash, to the weaponization of Covid-19 to advance fintech platforms, and the cryptocurrency rebels and fringe groups pushing back, Cloudmoney takes us to the frontlines of a war for our wallets that is also about our freedom.

This is a straight-forward, readable account, written with the minimum of jargon, of the central importance of money in the ordinary business of the life of different people throughout the ages from ancient times to the present day. It includes the Barings crisis and the report by the Bank of England on Barings Bank; up-to-date information on the state of Japanese banking and the changes in the financial scene in the US. It also touches on the US housing market and the problem of negative equity. The paradox of why more coins than ever before are required in an increasingly cashless society is clearly explained, as is the role of the Euro coin as the lowest common denominator in Europe's controversial single currency system. The final section provides evidence to suggest that for most of the world's richer countries the era of persistent inflation may well be at an end. This new edition is updated and takes account of important recent developments such as the independence of the Bank of England, the introduction of Euro notes and coins from 1st of January 2002 and developments in electronic money.
