Todd Zywicki Announces Publication of Consumer Credit and the American Economy

By Todd Zywicki on August 15, 2014

Todd Zywicki has announced that his new co-authored book Consumer Credit and the American Economy is now officially available for sale. The book is co-authored with former Federal Reserve economist Thomas Durkin, current Fed economist Gregory Elliehausen, and University of Arizona professor Michael Staten (who was formerly head of the Credit Research Center and Financial Services Research Program). It is a comprehensive look at the economics, regulation, history, and intellectual history of consumer credit in America (largely excluding mortgage credit, however, which we decided is really a book unto itself). For more information, see his announcement in the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/08/14/consumer-credit-and-the-american-economy/.
