In a world where we just went through a world economic meltdown, do we need something that to gives anyone instant credit? From what I've seen there isn't a way to turn this off. What will happen when 1) Your phone gets lost and 2) how many kids of smart phones now days?

you seem rather worried about the NFC but many have to remember that if your phone has a NFC system doesn't necessary mean you will have credit, few teenagers i know use cards to buy online, but those a prepaid cards that the user can reload on some stores (Radioshaq has those) I bet many could use their phones instead of cards for this options now regarding your two questions

1) if your credit card gets lost or stolen? if your whole wallet does? its almost the same, the user must know your phone password and your account password in order to make transactions under your name

2) Ive stayed above the ability to pay wit your pone wont give you credit, now an authorized company can. maybe you can find it useful for kids when you can directly put their allowance on their phone, and show them. I bet the fact that they can easily track their expenses and transfer their money to their savings account may turn them into more money responsible adults, electronics don't spoil kids, bad parenting does
