Portland author David Wolman will discuss his new book, The End of Money, in Hood River, OR tonight at Springhouse Cellars at 6:30 pm. The event is co-sponsored by Waucoma Bookstore and the Gorge Owned Business Network. “For ages, money has meant little metal disks and rectangular slips of paper. Yet the usefulness of physical money—to say nothing of its value—is coming under fire as never before. Intrigued by the distinct possibility that cash will soon disappear, Wired contributing editor David Wolman sets out to investigate the future of money . . . and how it will affect your wallet.
Wolman begins his journey by deciding to shun cash for an entire year—a surprisingly successful experiment (with a couple of notable exceptions). He then ventures forth to find people and technologies that illuminate the road ahead.”—from publisher info about the book. Buy The End of Money from Waucoma Bookstore.
