Visa Study Sheds Light on Upcoming Holiday Shopping Patterns

A new study from Visa indicates that, while brick-and-mortar shopping will still be important during the holiday shopping period, digital efforts will be critical for the season and beyond.

The stakes are huge. According to the latest Back to Business Holiday retail report, 88 percent of consumers plan to buy and give gifts this season, despite the coronavirus pandemic. Nearly half of consumers plan to do most of their shopping in-person, at 48 percent, compared with the 26 percent who will primarily rely on e-commerce. Twenty-six percent plan on an equal mix of live and online.

Clearly small- to medium-size businesses, or SMBs, can’t afford to overlook Internet sales. And more have gotten that memo, particularly during the coronavirus era. Eighty-two percent of SMBs report that they’ve gotten online within the past year. Seventy-nine percent established an online presence over the past one to five years and 66 percent got

Tough visa rules for African students seeking to study in US

By Nation Africa

President Donald Trump’s government is planning to bar East African students from pursuing degrees in the US by limiting their stay in the country.

The move which is contained in proposals by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will also see students from a majority of African countries barred from getting student visas longer than two years.

This means that the students will be unable to pursue education in American universities where degrees and other certifications take about four years of study.

“If DHS’s new proposed rule goes through, international students from countries like Nigeria, Kenya, Vietnam, and the Philippines would be effectively banned from getting four-year degrees in the US,” US Immigration lawyer Aaron Reinchlin-Melnick, who is a Policy Analyst at the American Immigration Council, warns.

According to the new DHS proposal, students from countries on the State Sponsor of Terrorism List (Iran, Syria,

Biden’s tax plan could hike costs on largest US banks, study finds

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan may not just spell bad news for the nation’s wealthiest individuals, but also its wealthiest banks.

The 10 largest banks in the U.S. could see their combined yearly net income decline by more than $7 billion, according to an S&P Global Market Intelligence analysis, owing to a bid to moderately raise the corporate tax rate.

Biden has proposed increasing the corporate tax rate to 28 percent. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act reduced the corporate tax rate to 21 percent, from 35 percent.

JOE BIDEN’S 2020 TAX PLAN: THE KEY POINTS
