FDIC Pilot Program Explores Alternatives to Payday Loans

“Banking industry experts are calling it a significant first step in an attempt to find a less-predatory way to provide short-term credit.”

This is the solution, not legislation. Trust me, if you saw the deliquencies that payday lenders have, you would realize that 36% is just not realistic. There has to be a balance.
