I could imagine RFID-type tracking of bills. What I can't imagine is
how you'd ever manage to track metal coins in and out of a cash register,
unless the *register* itself has embedded analog signint pre-processing.
If it's worldwide, I can only imagine consistent data if acquired by
satellite, so it's got to be some frequency that propagates relatively
well, with some sort of passive radar type mechanism?
Or is this why all cell phones have FM receivers now?
