Re: Risk vs benefit

All very logical, however, politics has gone way beyond logic, particularly over saving 'lives'.So politicians et al jump up and down if the total number of deaths go up, but ignore the data which shows that this is simply an effect of a larger population and in fact the number of deaths per 1,000 may have gone down.

So what will happen is that encryption will be banned and all bank transactions will be conducted in person over the counter, progress!
