I did not use a single piece of paper money throughout the Baltic Scandinavian countries. Everything is cashless and wireless. Even in euroland I had trouble getting rid of my Euros. The cards have no foreign transaction fees and an attractive conversion rates.

    Likewise, I have encountered in world travel two types of cashless societies: The first are the affluent nations of ‘plastic people’, as the hobos say, who use credit cards. The second are the third world countries where, in the remote areas, barter rules since there is no cash or plastic.

    Have spent past months driving around west coast and was recently in Scandinavia and just moved out of Hoboken. The area that I see as most aligned with ayn rand’s ideal is Reno. It’s probably what Austin Texas was like thirty years ago. If you want to hav the wind at ur back this is the place imo.
