Abstract

An important problem confronting those in the consumer credit industry is the absence of a cohesive body of law. This impairs creditors of all types and also results in unequal treatment of consumers. In a comprehensive study Mfr. Felsenfeld analyzes the evolution from purely state regulation of consumer credit to a combination of state and federal control. The author suggests that, despite certain merits of local regulation, the consumer credit area may well be preempted by future federal legislation.
