Jocelyn Donze (Toulouse School of Economics (GREMAQ)) and Isabelle Dubec (Toulouse School of Economics (GREMAQ)) discuss The Effect of Regulating Interchange Fees at Cost on the ATM Market.
ABSTRACT:We show that regulating interchange fees at cost reduces banks' incentives to deploy free ATMs over time. Simultaneously, more and more charging ATMs are deployed by independent deployers. These results are consistent with the recent evolution of the British ATM market.
