We often hear it contended that individuals should be allowed to
conduct their checking accounts unrestricted by limitations as to the size of
their accounts, the 'amount of their checks or a monthly charge on the account
for services.
We believe that it is specious reasoning. It is prrnitting the tail to wag
the dog. It would be just as logical to insist that because the merchant derives
a nice profit from the sale of.-suits and overcoats, he ought to conduct a
haberdashery department where he gives away hosiery and neckwear. The
difficulty would be that so much free business would be done that it would
seriously impair his profits and his ability to seive his profitable customers.
Manifestly it would not be good business.
The analogy between the merchant and the bank is imperfect in this
respect however, in that the merchant might justify such a policy as being
good advertising. It might increase the sale of suits and overcoats to such
an extent as to actually increase his income. But with the bank there is no
such possibility. It results only in increased expense with no additional
profitable business.
It certainly is true that banks exist because there is a demand for them.
They would not operate if there were no profitable business for them to
handle. That fact we believe should control the policy of the bank. The
bank should try and facilitate the handling of its profitable accounts and not
permit too great interference from its unprofitable ones. In that manner it
will really render the highest service to its community.
But of course we are not arguing that banks should discontinue the
carrying of small checking accounts. A checking account is a very valuable
service which few .folks care to do without. To force them to discontinue
it would be a serious inconvenience for them and would be unfair. But if it
is a valuable service they should be willing to pay for it. If the account is
not large enough to pay for itself, a charge should legitimately be made to
cover its cost.
The bank you deal with is doubtless desirous of serving you as faithfully
as possible. But its directors have a justifiable right to insist that it not
