Electronic Funds Transfer as a Subject of Study in Technology, Society, and Public Policy
The papers presented at this conference have highlighted the major areas of concern about electronic funds transfer, and have indicated how research might be structured to look into these issues. This paper steps back from both the specific agenda of research topics and from the broader consideration of EFT as a phenomenon in order to: (1) address technology as a subject of continuing research effort in the area of technology, society, and public policy, (2) explore the need for continuing policy research, (3) propose an outline for a longitudinal study of EFT, and (4) discuss implementation mechanisms for such a study.
