    does their government have the power to arbitrarily suspend their electronic wallets in the event that they somehow 'hurt the feelings' of ;the communist party?

    I remember a long time ago seeing a documentary about china embracing SMS text messaging and how they were using that to communicate. Meanwhile we were still stuck learning how to use the cell phone. Who knows maybe us Americans are just a bit behind in technology when it comes to everyday use. I know for a fact "Boomers" are hella scared of technology and think everyone is peeping on their sweet dirty old people habits.

    IN OTHER WORDS...the end of any real middle class. As long as the money flows, no one will notice, but if things get tight, the inability to barter and deal, will be sorely missed.
