1. What is the “cashless society”?

• A world where no physical money change hands, ending a 7,000 year-old practice. Most of us use a credit card or a debit card, but have some cash in our wallets. Soon it won’t be a hybrid. It will literally be NO CASH.

• Sweden predicts it will get there by 2023. That’s 4 years!! Maybe it’s10 years out for North America, but it’s coming. There is a lot of new technology that will enable the change – Apple Pay, PayPal, bitcoin, maybe Facebook, and stuff that hasn’t been invented yet.

• I was in a local coffee shop last week and it posted a sign saying that it was going cashless. We will see this more and more.

 

2. What was the rationale they gave? How did they justify it?

• Safety: You don’t have to carry it, so you can’t lose it and it can’t get stolen. They don’t have to keep cash on-site.

• Ease: Less time spent counting cash, means more time serving customers.

• Hygiene: Coins and paper carry germs. Tapping a card does not.

• They didn’t mention cost, specifically. But I think that’s part of it. It takes time to reconcile the petty cash and walk to the bank and all that.

• The “no cash” signs are very common in Sweden, less so here.

 

3. What are the pros and cons of cashless? Pros first.

• For businesses, all the benefits the coffee shop mentioned. It reduces “friction” and that is a drag on the economy.

• For society, there should be less money laundering, less tax evasion, fewer weapons deals -- because everything is trackable.

• For the consumer, it is easier. You just have to carry your phone and you’re good to go.

 

4. What are the cons?

• My big worry is for the consumer. It reduces friction and reduces the “pain” of spending. This is not good. To keep a handle on your money, you want “no friction” on saving, and “lots” of friction on spending. A cashless society doesn’t help you.

• The data shows that we are 1) more impulsive when we pay with credit and buy more unhealthy things. And 2) we have a lower emotional attachment to things we bought on credit.

• I was at the mall last week buying stuff for a trip. I needed a rain coat, new shoes and a new shirt. I just tapped my way through that mall. It would have been MUCH harder to spend if I were peeling off the bills.

 

5. Will cashless cost us more or less?

• We don’t know yet. Debit is cheaper than credit for retailers because of the inter-change fees. But what happens once cash totally disappears? Will they jack up fees to consumers?

• Will it be like Netflix? Remember when it was like $9? Now we’re addicted to it and we STILL pay even though it costs $1,000 per month.

• There is also a segment of the population that doesn’t have a bank account. Maybe they’re poor and living on social assistance. Or seniors who have a hard time adopting new technology. How do they live in this world?

 

6. What can you do to help yourself?

• Save first: Automate your savings for retirement, kids’ education. Then you can spend the leftover.

• Use debit, not credit: You WANT to be dealing with constrained resources, versus increasing credit card debt.

• Be vigilante: I have an app that sends notifications when I spend. It makes it more difficult to be mindless.

1. Why would my dentist suggest orthodontic treatment?

  • An orthodontist is a dentist who has had additional training specifically in moving teeth and can be considered and “expert” in diagnosing the causes for poorly aligned teeth and how best to treat the conditions.  Often, there are subtle and hard-to-see issues that may be overlooked when planning to straighten teeth.

 

2. Why would my dentist suggest orthodontic treatment?

  • Cosmetics – orthodontics can align the teeth to make them straighter and appear whiter since it eliminates overlaps, crowding and areas that collect stain that would otherwise missed by toothbrush bristles.
  • Anormal bite – problems with teeth hitting each other incorrectly which can lead to excessive wear, chipping, or fractures in a tooth.
  • Jaw pain (TMJ) – Tooth position has a tremendous impact on how are jaw comes together and the muscles that are required to chew, smile, open and close. If teeth are, “colliding” and interfering then our muscles adapt and try to avoid these collisions.  This may impact how our facial muscles and chewing muscles behave – spasms, weakened, or strained.
  • Headaches/migraines – spasming, weak or strained muscles contribute to over 80% of different forms of headaches (like tension headaches and cluster headaches) and can also trigger migraines.3. Different types of orthodontic treatment options

 

3. Different types of orthodontic treatment options

  • Traditional braces silver brackets and wires
  • Lingual wire braces brackets and wires attacked to back of the teeth so that you can’t see them when talking or smiling
  • Clear trays clear plastic trays that can move the teeth incrementally.
  • Ceramic braces white brackets with a silver wire. Much less noticeable.

 

4. What is a lingual retainer (cemented or not cemented) and why do I need it after my orthodontic treatment is complete?

  • Teeth will always move and relapse to new positions during the course of your life.  To ensure that your teeth stay straight you need to have some form of a retainer that can prevent shifting and moving.  Bonded retainers require no compliance from the patient as it is there 24/7/365.  A removable retainer can be lost, warp, break or no longer fit.

 

5. Can my teeth move back when I get my braces taken off?

  • Same answer as above
