Impact of the Improved Economy on short-term loans

Recent findings show that the US economy is back on its road to improvement with housing markets experiencing gradual demand. The report known as the Beige Book indicated that there were rising home sales and increase in demand for autos in most parts of the country in the month of August and September. Though this move is not something that can be termed as ‘impactful’, it is no doubt a sign of positive change.

An economy of a country is based on how much money is flowing and how much money, people are spending. So, if you take a short-term loan and use it for whatever purpose you need, it translates into the improvement of the economy as well. Bear in mind that if you use the short-term loan to pay down other debt, it does not really help the economy. But if you use the same money to buy goods and services in the country, more so indigenous products, it can boost the economy. So, it is important that you use the short-term loan to use for the purpose you need and pay back the money in time, rather than extend the period and borrow money again to pay back the previously lent amount.

If the economy shows steady progress and a definite rise, the good news should spread its sunshine across various sectors of the economy, including short-term lending. As we know, these unsecured loans do not need any collateral are offered at high interest rates. One of the most popular forms of short-term unsecured loans is the payday loan, which is given on the basis of the paycheck of an individual. In a declining economy, a sudden job loss can make a person unable to pay back his short-term debt, which will boomerang into steep interest rate and fees.

Joining the fray of payday loans are other alternatives like peer to peer lending, cash advances from credit cards and direct deposit advances from banks. All of these augur good for the economy when it is on the upswing. So in an improved economy, people will be able to borrow money confidently and pay back in time. You can always take a short-term loan and give a post-dated check to the company to deduct the money from your next pay stub. You are confident that you will be able to pay back the money. This is good business for the short-term loan company also because they are earning the fees for the amount paid. Most unsecured loan companies do give loans at a lesser interest rate if your relationship and pay back record with the company is good enough.

Short term loans have contributed tremendously to the economy. Payday loan contributes more than $12 billion dollars to the US economy. It has supported more than 170,000 jobs nationally, out of which about 90,000 people are directly employed I various storefront locations. As the economy improves, it becomes even easier for people with bad credit to get loans. So, use the benefit of an improved economy to boost you credit, increase your income and borrow short-term unsecure loans easily with the ability to pay back the money on time.
