Cash is a problem. It's annoying to carry, it spreads germs, and people can steal it from you. Checks and credit cards have reduced the amount of physical cash flowing through society, but the complete elimination of cash is virtually impossible. It'll never happen; drug dealers and politicians would never stand for it. Checks and credit cards have an audit trail; you can't hide to whom you gave money.
