I'm confident that will be part of the overall long term plan. It will likely start out far less obtrusive and more to nearly everyones liking though. Once the plan is fully implemented no one will be able to appear in public without proper documentation (carried or implanted), as hidden scanners would be placed just about everywhere, and it would be easy to flag a passerby who does not partake of the system. Everyone will feel safe.
There would be no checkout from a store. The act of merely walking out of a store with merchandise would debit your computerized bank account for the value of the items (or bring hell down upon you right then and there if your account was overdrawn).
