A glimpse of the global payments landscape
Description for this week's episode: 2019 has been a whirlwind year for payments. Multiple mega deals were made and unlikely alliances between strange bedfellows have been forged. While we are still busy with plastics in the U.S., and finally enjoying the convenience of contactless payments, China has leapfrogged the world with their e-wallets ecosystem. All across Asia, big technology giants, such as Alibaba and Tencent in China, Grab and Go Jek in Southeast Asia, and Line in Japan and Korean, super apps play an increasingly dominant role in consumers’ lives beyond payments to other banking services. Will we see the West copying the trend from the East?
Join Theo and Brad in this week’s new episode of “The Other 50”, where they talked with Stephanie foster about global payment trends, digital adoption, and social responsibilities.
