The Cambridge Security Initiative jointly led by Sir Richard Dearlove, former chief of the Secret Intelligence Service, and professor Christopher Andrew, a former official historian of MI5, is a think tank specialising in security and intelligence. The initiative has released a report on cashless society, authored by Alfred Rolington and the verdict is… cash is still king, and don’t expect to see it disappear any time soon. This, however, runs contrary to the rhetoric of some central bankers these days, among them Andy Haldane, the BoE’s chief economist who has floated the idea of having the central bank issue its own digital cash as a means of combatting the zero lower bound. Haldane has also said central bank–issued digital currencies form a core part of the Bank’s research agenda as a result.
