On Thursday, July 11, and Friday, July 12, 2013, the Payment Cards Center hosted the conference Small-Dollar Credit: Products, Economics, and Regulation. The conference provided a forum for participants from industry, academia, nonprofit organizations, and regulatory agencies to discuss the historical background of small-dollar credit, the evolution in products and product delivery methods, insights from economic research and theory about how markets for small-dollar credit products function, new data sources that may provide systematic evidence about how consumers use these products, the conditions that precipitate their use, the consequences of their use, and the regulations that govern these products.
