In 1972 the National Commission on Consumer Finance surveyed and made recommendations for improving the legal and marketplace environments for consumer credit. Twenty years later, industry, consumer groups, government agencies, and the national and state legislatures are still groping for a coherent approach to the regulation of consumer credit. It is time for another national commission, or similar group, to make an objective and informed assessment of appropriately uniform policy for consumer financial services, and to craft a blueprint for future developments.
