Oh it's absolutely like that, especially when you tie in with the way
different currencies are managed now, and how money is exchanged.

Then beyond the simple control of the money, don't forget everything they
know about the purchases.  They don't give the average person much of that
info, but they know a whole *lot* about you.  Tie that with all the amazing
statistical analysis they can do on that data.  Man just think of what you
could do knowing all of that.
