Tawni Ferrarini (Economics) contributed an opinion piece titled "The Value of Credit " to the Washington Examiner on April 23. In addressing the credit crunch and resulting pressure for reform, Ferrarini wrote: "Unfortunately, some interest groups are pushing legislation that would actually limit future access to credit without addressing the root problems. One group, the Center for Responsible Lending, is embroiled in an attempt to cap the interest rate lending institutions can charge, which would eliminate some of the only loan options available to Americans with few alternatives. A better solution is increasing responsible use of credit through financial education.  Paying for education is a great example. Another is creating capital for small businesses."
