The Debit Card Cometh – BBC 1969

This remarkable 1969 BBC video documents the forthcoming horror of electronic debit cards – or specifically the problems we will face by putting many tellers and the personnel to reconcile accounts out of work.   While surely impactful for those directly affected by the computers which put them out of work, I think most would agree on balance we are better for the higher efficiency of electronic banking.  Witness smoking in offices and the suggestion of vandalism for non-acceptance of checks.
