Banknotes for thieves

The European Central Bank is thinking of adding RFID tags to banknotes to protect against forgery (story).

In addition to anti-forgery benefits, think of all the efficiencies the tags will introduce: ATMs won't give out the wrong amount, banks can count stacks of bills faster, thieves can choose their victims more carefully. With RFID crime does pay... efficiently.
