Commercial Payment Cards: U.S. and Global Market Trends, 9th Edition
Business needs are increasingly global in nature, requiring global payment solutions that meet the needs of companies large and small. But global payments are especially being shaped by a more specific phenomenon: the economic tilt toward Asia, and China in particular, that has come with increasing prosperity among its populations. This wealth, in turn, is causing a seismic shift in global travel that is challenging the decades-old dominance of Western-based payments networks.
