Being cashless only isn't really a problem either. I cant recall when I last undertook a cash transaction, I've had a $20 note in my wallet waiting for a cash emergency for well over a year. Seems odd that New Zealand scores relatively lowly in this index, yet, day to day, it is largely a cash-free society. The only important use for cash is where one wants to pay for a service "under the counter" (a/k/a a "cashie") to avoid tax.
