J“lancial Experts Say Money Is Here To Stav is technology moving us into a cashless, checkless society in which all financial transac tions will be made with plastic cards and electronic systems? Absolutely not, say North Carolina's financial leaders John h'orelines, president of the North Carolina Bankers Association, puts the situation in perspective: ‘ Because new technology is providing us with greater capabilities in the management of financial services, the industry is in a state of transaction. But I do not foresee the time when our economy will be able to ope rate without coins and paper currency. The changes that are taking place can only benefit the consumer in the long run.’’ One of these changes in the N. C. Automated Clearing House Association (Nor CACHA), an organization of financial institutes that has formed to develop safe, faster transactions of money from account to another. President Willis R. Rhodes shares the m i. i ■ ■ mm iiicse auvancements will not eliminate the use of money or checks: “The member institutions of NorCACHA are providing ser vices that allow a person to have his pay deposited auto matically and without going to the bank, and to take care of recurring bills without having to write a check or make a telephone call. These ser vices are an improvement on similar services that have been available to consumers. “There will always be a need for money and conven tional checks. Various studies, individual tests, and common sense tell us that there is no say electronic banking ser vices can completely replace toe use of money and checks.” Michael J. Shade, Executive Director of NorCACHA, and a former banker, takes the his torical view in discussing elec tronic funds transfer (EFT): “Electronic banking is noth ing more than an evolutionary step to extend the financial delivery system so that cost ^n^^jonvenjeno^n^fastl^ improved. The financial community’s interest in EFT stems from a growing aware ness of new needs of the consumer, coupled with the necessity for the institutions to control costs so they can con tinue to deliver traditional banking services to the con sumer and businessman at a reasonable price. “What’s happening now is verv much in line with the growth of banking in this coun try. In our early years, the banking system made pay ment possible through the use of coin and paper money, but these were too limiting for an expanding nation. In particu lar, they did not offer a safe means of transferring monies over long distances to pay for goods from other parts of the country. w__ “Eventually, to meet the growing needs of a growing economy, the banking indus try developed the checking service — which is payment without the actual use of cur rency by the consumer. The use of checks, offering a grea ter degree of safety than cash, has grown dramatically over the years, until today 90 per cent of all transactions (by I — dollar volume) in this country are paid by check. “In the late '60s, the banking industry made another step forward, for the consumer in particular, with the introduc tion of credit cards. --"TROPIC PET SHOP 10 GAL.
