Changing With the Ever-Changing Times

Aug 18, 2007
The world is constantly changing. We all look forward to better options that will add to the convenience of daily life. Convenience wins out over qualities such as loyalty, steadiness, and discipline. In the fast-paced world of today, rapidity and ease are at the top of the list of people's greatest demands. Today's people prefer to fly rather than take the train. We call and text each other at the slightest chance. The Internet has resulted in making our lives extremely busy as instant noodles stop being the only "instant" thing in the world. Living in the moment has acquired a whole new meaning even as we place more and more emphasis on getting things done at the earliest.

It is no wonder that money is slowly being undermined as the preferred mode of payment. And which mode of payment is readying itself to be at the top of the world in the near future? There are no prizes for guessing this one. Yes, you are right. It is the credit card. Clearly, the credit card today has virtues that are not possessed by money. It is compact and can be carried any and everywhere. If you do lose it somehow, the money will not get pinched -- at least, not if you respond quickly by calling the cops and the credit card company.

Then again, with the growth of e-commerce, I wonder where we would be without strength of the credit card the credit card. Enter your card number into the box that is shown on the screen and rest assured that whatever it is that you are buying will be shipped to you pretty soon. These are conveniences that money has not yet developed the ability to supply.

There is also your ability to change one credit card provider for another. "Brand loyalty" is just a set of two words that hold very little significance in the world of today. We all want value for our money, and we want it yesterday. It is no wonder that people are willing to give up on their current credit card only so that they can find a better deal elsewhere. A lower rate of interest is always appreciated by people hoping to cut down on their expenses. I suppose, everybody falls into that category. Then, if you already have a credit card account, you can shift to another card with a lower interest rate, especially if the latter offers a zero percent balance transfer. Today's world offers us many such conveniences. We really should make the most of them.
