Money makes the world go around. The world go around … in billions of transactions everyday.  Money affects every area of our lives.   What is the future of cash, coin, plastic and payment systems?  Will virtual currencies render state monetary systems obsolete? Or will deflation degrade the dollar, giving rise to local and regional currencies?

Come listen and join in a discussion of our evolving monetary system/s.  Heather Schlegel, SXSW speaker, Futurist and Internet provocateur
will be addressing how information technology is changing the physical and cultural way we borrow and lend.

  • Alternative currencies and transaction
  • Technology’s impact on identity creation
  • Positive wildcards
