Ökonomen wie Kenneth Rogoff oder Miles Kimball wollen das Bargeld abschaffen.
I made it into the German press for wanting to demote–not abolish–cash, along with Ken Rogoff, who does indeed want to get rid of cash. (i wrote about Ken Rogoff’s views here.) Google Translate works fine on this article. Thanks to Rudi Bachmann for letting me know about this article.
See what I have to say about breaking through the zero lower bound with electronic money in “How and Why to Eliminate the Zero Lower Bound: A Reader’s Guide.” The article in the Süddeutsche Zeitung should have mentioned that I visited the European Central Bank and three of its associated national banks (France, Germany and Italy) to talk about how to keep paper currency from creating a zero lower bound.
