Factors behind high cash usage in Hungary
AbstractThis article summarises the findings of qualitative, in-depth interviews which aimed to explore the motivating factors behind domestic cash usage that generate the significantly higher cash volumes in Hungary than would ’normally’ be justified. In the opinion of the experts interviewed, cash usage may be facilitated by the intensive cash need of the hidden economy, the traditional cash-oriented behaviour of the public administration and a lack of trust in business-to-business transactions. This analysis primarily intends to capture certain trends, which may have temporarily changed in the wake of the economic crisis, but nevertheless span a number of years and the specific phenomena of which may be regarded as generally valid over the long term, apart from certain periodic effects.
