Why is it often so difficult to find an ATM when we need one? Some people say that the fewer the ATMs the more of our money will stay in the bank, for the bank to make money on by playing in the financial casinos of the world? It can’t be that bad, can it?
I deposit my money in a bank, and expect to be able to get to them when and where I need them. Especially the physical version of them, the cash I can keep in my pocket. I assume you do too?
But how can that be combined with disappearings ATMs? How can physical cash survive in our money system without an infrastructure for distribution? What are ATMs if not the infrastructure that makes the distribution of cash possible? Especially in a time where bankoffices are disappearing like snow under the varm sun of the spring?
Yes, there are other options and possibilities, like stores that accepts us getting extra cash out when we do our shopping. But who can get more than just pocket change there?
It should be obvious for all that the less ATMs we have the less chance we have keeping our cash. And ATMs must be used for us to keep them. Without ATMs cash will die.
When was the last time you used an ATM?
