This is how they'll force the chip implant on everyone who resists it under normal circumstances:

'The chaos that would ensue from such a collapse in businesses, supply and confidence would see money stolen by banks and other criminals from individuals and from hacked accounts. The “unstealable chip” might then be considered a reasonable way out of the chaos. The Economist's sales patter would be sugar-coated of course but the bottom line would be simple, take the chip if you want to eat.'
