Leave it to Sweden, the country that makes boys wear skirts to school, to be the first to outlaw cash.
Swedes can kiss autonomy from the grid and the privacy afforded by anonymous cash transactions goodbye.
Two things jump out at me about this story:
The article states that the Swedish government has only been keeping track of bank robberies for 30 years. What happened 30 years ago that made the rate of bank robberies jump high enough for the government to start taking notice? A wave of non-white immigration, perhaps?
Good thing Igor Alexander is not Swedish! He does not live in a cashless society, so his transactions with male prostitutes are off the record.
