We see by the news today...

Financial  experts say people are beginning to use more cash. Real cash, paper with pictures of dead presidents. Good enough.

The market -- any market -- is a system for telling us how much things cost and whether we can afford them. If we use cash, a glance in our wallets tells us how much we can buy --   loud and clear. 

With plastic you get an ambiguous answer for a long time,  but eventually the Plastic Lawyers come around and take your stuff. Then you know.
