Trade Publication
The author reflects on the argument between the Wisconsin Bankers Association and the Wisconsin Credit Union League over business lending. He cites how the country's leading institutions claim the importance of raising their respective lending authorities to help the economy. However, the author argues that credit unions and banks should do their jobs to help their members and customers, and make their loans available to the business community that need it.
