- Nearly 90 % of Spaniards believe that cash should bee guaranteed
- For more than 70% of Spaniards, cash is necessary in our society and 77% consider it to be a ‘public good’
- 82% of Spaniards are against limiting the possibility of paying in cash and 83% are against only accepting card payments
The study “Survey on the need for the permanence of cash” promoted by Plataforma Denaria and conducted by GAD3 on a sample of 1,001 surveys throughout Spain indicates that the majority of Spanish society is in favour of guaranteeing consumers cash payments
This Wednesday, Narciso Michavila, President of GAD3, participated in the presentation of Plataforma Denaria, presenting the results of the study. In his opinion, “Demonetisation can be a reason for the exclusion of an important part of Spain´s society, such as the elderly, people with disabilities or citizens who live outside the big cities”.
