US/AMERICAS:

A recent survey by the New York Federal Reserve shows that fears over access to credit have hit the highest level in more than a decade, with respondents indicating that the ability to get loans, credit cards, and mortgages is harder now than it was a year ago. The survey results were part of the New York Fed’s Survey of Consumer Expectations for August. Fears of credit access have been rising steadily since early 2022, around the same time that a survey by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas showed a large share of banks in the region reporting stricter credit standards. The credit crunch could wear away American consumers’ strength, which for over a year now has been a critical guardrail against a recession.
