In this article, the author focuses on the increasing U.S. credit interest rates and slow rebound. The author says that after Federal Open Market Committee first cut interest rates to 25% in December 2008, that level has remained unchanged. She implies that financial institutions should never focus alone on setting random maximum limits on loan types, but also look at the realignment of the balance sheet of a particular loan product if it brings value to it and its members.
