But this petition suggest some facts that are not true... just because gas-stations and small shops normaly didn't accept the large bills (because it would force them to keep more money for beeing able to change them - which would raise the risk for robbery) it does not mean you cannot use them for payment, in big stores or when buying a car it's no problem and that postal agencies do not accept in general is simply a lie... probably the starter of the petition is just generalizing a personal experience.tabbs wrote:And then there is that e-petition in Germany that suggests doing away with the €500 note. https://epetitionen.bundestag.de/index. ... ition=1914 Basically a good idea in my opinion, except that it's not the German federal parliament that could make such a decision.
PS: I don't want 1€ notes, they would be void and replaced even faster than the so that the chances for interesting hits would be very low I guess. It would be easier to increase the input of serials of course but thats not the very point of EBT in my opinion.
