Fun with Payment statistics

This is my concluding blog on the statistics of payments. These blogs applied statistical techniques to payments: how is their value distributed, how does the use of payment instruments grow or decline, what is the geographical spread of bank notes, etc. The enclosed pdf bundles these blogs in a single booklet. It can be downloaded and read on an iPad or in paper form. It could provide plane reading for those of us going to Sibos Osaka later this month. That would close the circle since I started writing the first chapter on my way back from Sibos Toronto last year. There is no hiding the fact that payments fascinate me, and obviously I’d like to hear any reactions, suggestions for further research, etc.
