Suddenly, money doesn't work

The Dankort system, the almost universal card payment system in Denmark, is down this morning. It’s mindboggling to think of all the small and large disruptions this creates – paying for transportation for instance.

It’s striking that with such large systems, you get equally large disruptions. Suddenly, in a glitch, money in general is out of order. That’s huge. Enough to make you consider carrying cash around. But then again, you can’t pay for a train ticket using cash at my station.  

Scaling your business in China - how to handle growth

Good advice from the CEO’s of Radiometer and House of Amber.
