Friday’s Government Reports Roundup

By Jamila Moore

  • Once per quarter the Securities and Exchange Commission surveys consumers to receive feedback regarding their access to credit. This quarter consumers reported feelings of discouragement when applying for credit; however, the agency found a decrease in credit applications and denials.
  • The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Systems studied the “effectiveness of central bank liquidity injections in restoring bank credit supply following a wholesale funding dry-up.” The report found that banks use various European resources to help support an increase in their credit supply or to boost “their holdings of high-yield government bonds.”
