  • Instant credit and loans
  • Cheaper interest rates

  • Access to online bank accounts
  • More government accountability
federal reserve board chairman alan greenspan says
Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan says:
  • A critical component of our ever more finely hewn competitive market system has been the plethora of information on the characteristics of customers both businesses and individuals.
  • The free-flow of information allows the market to adjust to meet consumers' needs. Market participants are able to detect and to respond to finely calibrated nuances in consumer demand.
  • Avoid legislative or regulatory solutions that artificially shape markets and influence behavior, especially when information technology is moving at a pace that renders previous regimes obsolete at an increasingly rapid pace.
  • The market will respond to the needs of consumers for greater privacy protection without legislation/regulation.
