In the latest episode of the IPA Payments Pod, the IPA book club returns with a look at the intersection of business and military strategy. We read the ancient classic “The Art of War,” by Sun Tzu, and to put it in a business context, we also discuss the Oliver Stone film “Wall Street.”
In this episode, Brian Tate, the IPA’s CEO, and Ben Jackson, the IPA’s COO discuss both the book and the movie and what they say about modern business. They discuss whether or not military strategy applies to business and whether the true message of Stone’s film got lost in the story telling.

In this episode, Ron Morrow, executive director of Supervision at the Bank of Canada, discusses the regulatory requirements around offering payments services there.
We discuss the role of the Bank of Canada, how regulations are written there, and the upcoming regulatory changes under the Retail Payment Activities Act.
