    quoting prices in dollars and cents?  This guy's never been east of the potomac.  World Bank personal accounts?!  Embedded?!  Puh-lease!

    I guess if you can believe in the rapture, the above makes perfect sense.

      Yeah, that can be done now, but.... why would anyone want to do that when plastic cards work just fine ?

      The funny thing is that Kistler could have actually stuck to the facts, rather than making up such hooey, and made his sinister point well enough.

        has more to do with the "World" in World Bank, as much as it has to do with imbedding, and involuntary imbedding at that.  Tried opening a personal account there?  Turned down?  Try the IMF.  It's ridiculous, and is right in there with the use of "dollars" in a UK "supermarket."

        While I agree that the information disbursed by the use of plastic is a concern, one is not forced to use it, which is the europhobic argument that Kistler is making.

        If the event happened at all, I can see somebody who, say, had an account at a local co-op waving his arm around, then taking the piss out of some yank, while kistler's friend pretends to be all-knowing and feeds into it.

        Now that would have amusing to watch.
