The future landscape for cash and payments
Speakers: Professor Jakub Górka of Warsaw University and David Birch, Digital Money Guru at Consult Hyperion
Background:For years, we’ve tried to replace cash with cards. Now we’re trying to replace cash with phones. Can cash ever actually be replaced? After all, cash in circulation is increasing year on year and cash is still the only truly trusted, real-time value exchange that exists in any economy. So what is the future of cash and how will money look in the future? In this stimulating debate, two experts on the future of money will discuss the way in which our behaviours are changing.
