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.
