(Infowars) Bill Gates is now promoting "digital currency" in third-world countries, which will make the poor even more dependent on central banks while also turning them into guinea pigs for the development of a "cashless society" in the U.S. and Europe.
Gates outlined his plan for a cashless society in a letter published Thursday in which he proposed the poor have better access to mobile phones so they can store their financial assets digitally instead of keeping hard currency at home.
