  • EMV’s Not-Very-Even Distribution - PaymentsViews.com (George Peabody) - "In a market where simplicity and consistency has economic value—Apple Pay, PayPal, Amazon One-Click—cards are seemingly harder to use than ever while mobile payment methods proliferate and evolve.

  • Wells Fargo Survey: 2015 Gains in Small Business Optimism Erased - “This has been an unusually slow economic recovery for everyone, and small business owners are certainly feeling that,” said Mark Vitner, Managing Director and Senior Economist for Wells Fargo Securities. “With the economy growing as slowly as it has been, it’s been difficult for many business owners to increase their sales, and this has been particularly burdensome for firms who have seen expenses rise, including healthcare costs."
