This 22-page issue is our final newsletter of 2022. The extra pages contain statistics we wanted to provide on topics including domestic-market-only credit and debit cards worldwide, commercial card products in the US, card acceptance locations for the global brands and card fraud. We are also sending you our best wishes for delightful Bodhi Day, Hanukkah, Yule, Kwanzaa, Zartosht No-Diso, Christmas and New Year’s holiday celebrations. We’ll have a new issue for you on January 15.
