Ross Dawson

In my keynote I spoke about the broader trends in technology, society, and business, and then looked at some of the uncertainties impacting ATMs and branches. During the 2008-2009 global financial crisis cash issuance went up substantially, driven by fears that banks were not secure places to hold assets. Recipients of cash can use the funds immediately, leading to discounts for cash payment.

Cognitive Biases in Times of Uncertainty

John Hagel

We live in a world of increasing pressure and uncertainty, driven in large part by digital technology infrastructures. The pressure comes from intensifying competition as people previously marginalized in our global economy master these infrastructures and compete for jobs and markets that were previously secure franchises.   In times of high uncertainty, we all have a natural tendency to magnify risk and discount reward.

What Is To Be Done? (Part 1)

John Hagel

My last post on The Dark Side of Technology definitely seems to have hit a responsive chord. Many of us see evidence of this dark side of technology every day in the world around us.

And they're not really providing a discount and a lot of students have been complaining about that and I think they have a good reason to complain. And, of course, access to the internet and digital technologies poses a problem. Fact stone was a technology at one point.

For comparison sake, according to the United States Social Security Administration, the median wage in the U.S. the company’s fearless leader) decided in 2013 to offer his customers an additional 4 percent discount — suggesting his customers could probably use the money more than the company’s shareholders — a coup d’état was put in motion, and Arthur T.

The short of it is that American Airlines not only decided not to waive the opportunity to soak Jake an extra $359 for moving his departure from New York one day ahead to make his grandma’s funeral, but gave him this peevish, passive-aggressive policy-über-alles response: “American reviewed the policy a few years back and decided that since funeral homes, doctors, and clothiers don’t discount their rates, we shouldn’t either.&#

Would getting rid of cash make our lives easier and better?

Dan Pink

All of that being said, I’m still hopeful that cash’s death by 1,000 cuts is still on course, thanks to emerging technologies and alternative currency innovators. Cash costs too much in terms of time, materials, security, transportation, you name it. On Sunday night I did something that, when you stop and think about it for a moment, was weird. Accompanied by SaulonSports , I drove to Ray’s Hell Burger to pick up dinner for ourselves and our fellow Pinks.
