Cash Payments Banned in France
French Finance Minister Michel Sapin has announced that France will be enacting strict limits on the use of cash in the wake of January’s Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack, citing the fact that those responsible used cash to purchase equipment. Starting in September, France’s new cash policies will ban payments of over 1,000 euros in cash for French citizens and expenditures of over 10,000 euros for foreign visitors. ($1 = 0.9433 euros)
The writing is clearly on the wall folks; this phony move against the ‘War on Terror’ is just another step towards escalating a very real war on the use of cash and personal privacy.
