The Cashless Society: A Live Episode

The Cashless Society: A Live Episode

Fortune Favors the Bold - The Official Mastercard Podcast - March 13, 2018 - 28:24

Imagine using your phone to give a subway busker a couple bucks. Or, walking into a store knowing you won’t have to wait in line to check-out. Imagine a world beyond cash. In some Scandinavian countries, this is already a reality—roughly 90-percent of all financial transactions are on debit cards. In this episode, taped in front of a live audience in Manhattan, an economist, a humanitarian and a businessman will discuss how cash is being replaced around the world with electronic payments. You’ll hear a lively conversation, moderated by Ashley C. Ford, between representatives from The Fletcher School at Tufts, The International Rescue Committee, and Lyft about what going cashless looks like worldwide, and what the United States can learn from other countries about getting it right.

About The Show

Season 3 of Fortune Favors the Bold takes on real questions from real people — financial questions that everyone thinks about, but no one talks about. With host Ashley C. Ford, we'll be putting those questions out in the open, exploring how money is tangled up in everything and finding the answers through our own “Financial Identity”. New episodes premiere in January 2020. This is the official Mastercard podcast, produced in partnership with Pineapple Street Studios
