To attract small businesses through WhatsApp, Facebook last year invested $5.7 billion in Reliance Industries Ltd's (RELI.NS) media and telecommunications arm, Jio Platforms. A border confrontation with China prompted it to effectively ban Chinese social media apps, including TikTok and WeChat.

REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File PhotoBack-to-school sales at U.S. department stores are expected to jump about 25% from last year, as parents splurge on apparel, supplies and electronics for the new academic year when many kids return to classrooms, an industry report showed on Thursday. Sales at department stores this back-to-school season, which runs mid-July through early-September, are forecast to surge 25.3% from a year earlier, and 9.5% over 2019, according to Mastercard Inc SpendingPulse data. Total retail sales, excluding auto and gas, are projected to rise 5.5%. The pandemic pushed department stores, such as Macy's (M.N) and Kohl's (KSS.N), to sell largely online and streamline their businesses at a time they were already facing intense competition and a shift in consumer preference. On Wednesday, The National Retail Federation raised its growth forecast for 2021 U.S. retail sales as the economy reopens faster than predicted.

Bitcoin, Other Crypto Assets Targeted for Stiff Banking Regulation
  + stars: | 2021-06-10 | by ( Simon Clark | ) www.wsj.com + 0.94   time to read: +1 min
The top global standard setter for banking regulation proposed a strict new rule that would require banks to essentially set aside a dollar in reserves for every dollar of bitcoin they own. The Basel Committee for Banking Supervision, a group of global central bankers and regulators, announced the plan Thursday in a public consultation about how it intends to treat cryptocurrency assets, which it said had prompted concerns about consumer protection, money laundering and terrorist financing. “Certain cryptoassets have exhibited a high degree of volatility, and could present risks for banks as exposures increase,” the Basel, Switzerland-based committee said in a statement. Mastercard Inc. has said it plans to support some cryptocurrencies on its network and Bank of New York Mellon Corp. has invested in a cryptocurrency startup. The committee, which includes the Federal Reserve, European Central Bank and other major central banks, doesn’t enforce rules itself but sets minimum standards that regulators around the world agree upon and implement locally.

The sales season is typically a major driver for retailers as families buy school supplies, clothes and college dorm decor. The back-to-school season is usually a time of new beginnings, but consumers are more eager than usual for a fresh start after the pandemic. For retailers, the 2021 back-to-school season comes at a critical moment. Apparel sales are expected to rise about 78% compared with the back-to-school season in 2020 and 11% from the 2019 season, according to Mastercard's forecast. She said those emotions may influence families' back-to-school shopping as some parents "feel like they definitely have to go big."

The United States' relatively fast start in vaccinations should help Visa close the gap between its stock and more international-focused competitors, according to investment firm Piper Sandler. Analyst Christopher Donat upgraded the payment stock to overweight from neutral, saying in a note to clients over the weekend that the stock looked cheap relative to Mastercard, which has outperformed Visa over the past year and since the start of 2020.
