ABSTRACT
This article discusses reasons why more lending, especially under the Troubled Asset Relief Program, might not be the answer to the problems with the financial industry in the United States. The author believes that the U.S. government will be making a mistake by asking banks to lend rather than to hoard. Bankers had taken significant steps to tighten their lending practices on their own and government interference could unravel all the good that was done.
