Credit Cards and Money Demand: A Cross-sectional Study
This study investigates credit card holding and the household demands for several monetary assets in a simultaneous equations framework. It exploits the detailed data on household assets as well as demographic and preference characteristics in the 1983 Survey of Consumer Finances. A key finding is that, consistent with theory, a higher probability of credit card ownership implies lower demand for transaction balances with no effect on small time deposit balances.
