FDIC: FYI - Evaluating the Consumer Lending Revolution
Many of today’s important macroeconomic questions revolve around the consumer. Consumer spending makes up around two-thirds of U.S. gross domestic product (GDP), and in recent years it has contributed an even higher portion to GDP growth because of weakness in business investment spending. However, despite strong growth in disposable incomes, consumer balance sheets have become stretched by large amounts of new consumer and mortgage debt—over $1.1 trillion in the last year and a half alone. This rapid increase in consumer spending and borrowing raises important questions about the sustainability of current debt loads ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

FRB: Speech--Bernanke, Financial Innovation and Consumer ...
The concept of financial innovation, it seems, has fallen on hard times. Subprime mortgage loans, credit default swaps, structured investment vehicles, and other more-recently developed financial products have become emblematic of our present financial crisis. Indeed, innovation, once held up as the solution, is now more often than not perceived as the problem. I think that perception goes too far, and innovation, at its best, has been and will continue to be a tool for making our financial system more efficient and more inclusive. But, as we have seen only too clearly during the past two years, innovation that is ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
