Anyone who has been paying attention over the last four years knows the Europe is ground zero for Central Planning insanity.

Europe was created as a union with open borders with the open flow of capital. However, the elites have clearly demonstrated that they are willing to lie cheat and steal in order to maintain their agenda.

Case in point, Europe has already seen:

1)   The implementation of border and capital controls during a crisis (2012-2013).

2)   The confiscation of bonds or savings deposits to “bail-in” insolvent entities (Netherlands in 2011, Spain in 2012, Cyprus in 2013).

3)   The implementation of Negative Interest Rate Policy or NIRP in which savings are taxed by banks (2014 until today).

Put simply, Europe is where Central Planners in the developed world first implement their policies to see if they can get away with them.

Which is why the following should be on everyone’s radar.

Proposal for an EU initiative on restrictions on payments in cash

As preventing the anonymity linked to cash  payments  is  the  main  driver,  the objective  can  be  attained  by restricting cash payments through an EU legislative instrument, and thereby forcing payments through means that are  not  anonymous  (bank  transfers,  checks,  etc.).  But the same objective could also be attained by, while  still allowing  unrestricted  cash  payments,  imposing  a  declaration  to  a competent  authority.  This would allow the continuous reliance on cash payments, with its benefits in terms of simplicity and cost.

Put simply, Europe is now proposing a potential “threshold” on cash payments for the EU as a whole.

Individual EU member countries have already passed similar laws: France has banned any transaction over €1,000 Euros from using physical cash. Spain has banned transactions over €2,500. Germany is now proposing banning cash from transactions of €5,000 or higher.

However, the above proposal marks the first such proposal for a cash ban that would exist across the entire EU.

As we have been stressing for the last few months, the elites war on cash is not over, by any means. If anything it’s about to intensify.

Indeed… we've uncovered a secret document outlining how the US Federal Reserve plans to incinerate savings.

The war on cash is the the result of the 2008 massive redemptions of bank CDs as the herd panicked for the exits and cashed out. That's the real reason there's a war on cash.

The banker's worse nightmare is a bank run by the herd when they no longer can suppress interest rates, gold and waning confidence in the fiat "funny money" system.

India made bank runs far more difficult by allowing only the equivalent of $1 dollar bills in circulation.
Clif High predicts the bank run stampede starts on the Ides of March. Beware
