Economics. Explained.  

Consumer Loans

December 3, 2018

Consumer loans rose 4.6% in October after having risen 1.3% in September (the purple bars).  Over the course of the past year consumer loans have climbed by 5.5% (in red).

Led by a pickup in both consumer lending activity and more rapid growth in commercial and industrial loans, total loan growth during the past year such loans has climbed 4.4%. That is a respectable pace without being excessive.
