Transforming Payment Systems
David B Humphrey Setsuya Sato
Price: $ 22

World Bank Discussion Paper No. 291.
Discusses the major issues associated with transforming and improving payment systems in emerging market economies.
Economic activity requires a system of payments to facilitate trade and exchange between consumers and suppliers of products and services.
This paper looks at the differences between payment systems in centrally planned and market economies. The authors examine both short- and long-term methods of improving payment systems. Distinctions between the various payment instruments are made, and the roles of country size, banking structure, and institutional framework are discussed.
An appendix provides a summary checklist of information needed to plan adequately for changes in payment systems.
