Using Micromodels in EFT Analysis

  • Richard C. Larson
Part of the Applications of Modern Technology in Business book series (AMTB)


This paper focuses on a triad: individuals, nonfinancial firms, and financial institutions, each of which is important in the analysis of EFT systems. Any successful implementation of EFT must consider the perspectives and motivations of each of these three groups when they undertake financial transactions. Cohn(1) correctly points out that an appropriate analysis of this triad will require a multidisciplinary set of skills including economics, marketing, the law, technological innovation, computer science, and operations research.
