TIGHTER CREDIT STANDARDS AND BANK LIQUIDITY

Commercial real estate lending by banks represents one of the largest blocks of available debt financing in the U.S. market. In the wake of the regional banking crisis, where three of the four largest American bank failures happened in the span of a couple months and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was forced to take over, the attention of the market and regulators shifted to analyzing CRE lending and any complicity this sector had in the collapse of regional banks.

The Unflappable Labor Market

 

September 8, 2023

  • Unemployment remains stubbornly low throughout Fed’s hiking cycle

  • Demand for workers remains high

The Federal Reserve Act mandates that the Federal Reserve conduct monetary policy “so as to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates.” The Fed’s dual mandate guides monetary policy decisions to target two percent year-over-year inflation with a four percent unemployment rate. Inflation has occupied the macroeconomic spotlight over the past 18 months, reaching record highs in June of 2022 and causing the Fed to hike interest rates at a record pace. Despite the unprecedented hiking campaign, the U.S. unemployment rate remains at a low 3.8 percent.
