  • Your bank account: The next thing to go obsolete - CNN Money - "Not only is banking not for everyone, accounts are inaccessible to about half of the world.

  • Banking 2025: The Bank of the Future - "Once the number of new users reaches a critical mass, the process of reorganisation is no longer linear and continuous, but advances in bursts and exponentially. This means that, at a certain point in time, the process of system change gains so much momentum that it can hardly be controlled. In view of the inefficiency of the existing banking system as well as the economic superiority of web-based alternatives, it seems that it is only a matter of time before a system change takes place in the banking business."
