Episode 28: What will kill cash? Part II

In this second part of our series on cash, cards and digital wallets, we shift our focus to the challenges and opportunities of an entirely digital payments world and look to the innovation happening beyond consumer payments. 

We start with the legacy of India’s controversial 2016 demonetisation program, explore the role of central banks in cutting back cash, and investigate the future of cross border payments, where things are heating up.
