The credit card was the first step...brought to you by AMEX, another Shearson-Lehman tool. Very connected to the government and also provided foreign weaponry in exchange for tax credits in the late 80's.
Many people experience a false sense of financial security based upon their credit rating/credit limit. The chip is just a secondary phace for the government to regulate taxation.. I imagine taxes on overdue unpaid credit card balances...in the future.
