That was good information, not to often that a Chicago Economist admits his confusion.

I don't think you understood the article or the information in the post. Banks aren't just throwing money at consumers now you have to have an income that supports your ability to manage your financial obligations.

If you don't have good credit you can't get a loan.

Banks are making loans, only to those people who have the credit history and income to pay those loans on time and with no difficulties.

That's a rational business decision.

From NPR, a leftist organization:
Show Me The Money
So what happened to that $85 billion a month $1 trillion total that the Fed has pumped into the financial system over the past year?
"It all got bottled up in the banks, and essentially none of it ... got lent out," Blinder says.
"
Why Aren't Banks Lending?
"This is the $64 trillion question the deep, deep mystery to me," Blinder says. "In bits and pieces, we understand that, but I think in large measure we don't understand it."
Blinder says one part we do understand is that the banks were burned by the financial crisis and are much more cautious about lending. Another factor, he says, is that the banks have some incentive to leave their reserves safely at the Fed, because the central bank pays them interest. It's only a quarter of a percent annually, but Blinder thinks the Fed should stop doing that to encourage banks to lend
"
"THE CENTRAL BANK PAYS THEM INTEREST" on the free money the fed gives them.
What's going on dear boy is the fed is GIVING the money to the banks and then the banks are investing it back and making a profit on it.
Nice work if you can get it.
Try denying it or research it yourself/
We're being screwed by the government and the banks are benefitting.

What do you think is the primary purpose of a local bank ? To make change for a dollar?

A Banker isn't making money if not making loans, revolving loans ,automobile, home , and most other consumer and business loans.

Their customers are people you work with and for.......

Personally since you asked, I'm committed to Credit Union Membership, I'm to cheap to pay bank service fees.

None are paying interest on accounts, their service fees out weight the interest if your balance is less than $2000 a month. CDs are paying below 1%
The kicker is it's the tax payers money that insures all FDIC accounts.
Ostupida';s financial policies, less than 1%, where's yur money? Not in a savings account I'll wager.

Rubbish, we're being swindled for bank profits and you refuse to admit it. Who's getting loans and for what? If I want to expand my business, I'll do it with the profits I've put away.

Where's the jobs?

How soon before you and the other lunatic libs start shreiking "RACISM" ?

Not long I'll wager.

Liberal interference in the credit market is what caused the mortgage crisis and the financial meltdown.

The economy is improving, SnowJob, you think anyone is waiting for your opinion on this?

Just because your customers are tipping you less it doesn't mean the rest of us aren't seeing the improvement.

if you thought your opinion was worth a buckle of warm seagull sh!t, you would need to keep changing your alias.

Temporary help to the State Budget for medicaid expansion would have prevented the Cleveland Clinic and other health care facilities from having to lay off those workers.
Medicaid always reimbursed less than private Health Care Insurance programs, that's not new in the industry.
Reimbursed less for more patient volume that an expansion would bring means you are treating less patients who don't have the ability to afford care.
In any event, Ohio's governor has seen the light and now wants to expand medicaid to get that money to help those facilities. As does Rick Scott down in Florida. Playing politics has bite them in the behind and it's not only the working poor that pays the consequence, it's those hospitals left to treat emergencies of people who can't pay.
I think it might be the volume that's going to do the harm at a 20% loss for every patient. The cost of medication and supplies aren't going down. Still the same amount of doctors getting paid less. I feel a doctor should live better that Justin Bieber.

Bieber doesn't contribute anything, yet a doctor's reimbursement will probably be limited.

Do you think the people have a right to another's intellectual property?

Obama announced the other day that he would use executive privilege to cause more havoc on our country. His policies put into executive orders will put addition millions of people out of work.

so you think people like you should determine what people make? not any good way for you to get out of this, teaman...either you think we should determine people's income by committee or by people like you or it is determined by the market...which is it?

i know what a real TEA person would say.
