Trump's Fed Nominee Advocated Abolishing Cash

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, Barry Donegan

Trump Federal Reserve Board of Governors nominee Marvin Goodfriend reportedly advocated on two different occasions the elimination of cash from circulation in an effort to prevent individuals from hoarding cash in the event that the Federal Reserve were to push a negative interest rate policy during a financial crisis.

The Mises Institute notes that Goodfriend first floated the idea in a 1999 paper called "The Case for Unencumbering Interest Rate Policy at the Zero Bound" and again promoted the concept at a 2016 Federal Reserve conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo.
