Didn't I read somewhere that they wanted the big notes out of circulation because pensioners tended to hoard them under the matress so that they could pay tradies in cash?

I know I do! :lol:

Yeah !... so does Buck !

He had so much loot stashed under his mattress, it finally wore out. That's why he had to replace it recently ! :heeheehee

I can understand this opinion of Andrew Leigh's. It will undoubtedly cause such problems, if it's introduced in such a way. Will cause problems anyway, I suppose. But what we. the world, must do is look further down the track, of how to work through and around those problems. Some generations, perhaps? Although trials are springing up in various parts of the world right now. Scary times. 8-[
