Less Lending

The latest survey of bank senior loan officers doesn’t suggest a thaw in consumer lending. 93% of loan officers reported lending standards for issuing credit cards and consumer loans were unchanged, while 83% reported no change in their willingness to make auto loans. A reason, 96% of officers surveyed said the spread between cost of funds and rates charged was flat! This is not good for banks or the economy.
