In the wake of the financial crisis many have pined for a supposed golden age of consumer credit, when consumers “lived within their means.” But credit has been a ubiquitous part of the American experience. The criticisms that underlay the financial crisis and the regulatory reforms proposed in response are simply a rerun of a cycle of regulation and deregulation in American history. This history enables an accurate prediction that this intervention and regulation will repeat the errors of the past, with unfortunate unintended consequences for consumers.
