Which is the right way to pay?
In December last year, the Irish government introduced a new, anonymous payment system to replace cash payments.
The new system, which has been described as a payment card, was designed to protect people’s identities.
The system was introduced as part of the Digital Economy Act 2015.
However, it was not a success for the Irish people and has since been withdrawn from circulation.
There have been many other examples of the government taking the wrong approach.
This article looks at the three major payment systems that have taken Ireland’s financial system back in time.
