Do Consumers Need More Credit ?
According to the latest report from Equifax, the amount of new consumer credit that is available via credit cards is increasing at a rapid rate – far above other consumer loans. From 2013 to 2014 there was a 28.5% increase in new credit on bank-issued credit cards. The next highest category was auto loans with only a 19.8% increase – still fairly significant though.
