Topic Credit & Debt

Credit and debt play a critical role in U.S. economic fluctuations, and changes in inequality drive changes in both the demand and supply of credit in the economy. Equitable Growth examines the role of credit and debt in the economy and seeks to understand these intersections and understand how best to ensure that the financial sector serves the public interest.
