The 2008 financial crisis raised concerns surrounding the validity of federal protection in the consumer financial market and brought increased scrutiny to short term consumer lending programs-including payday loans. In response to the political pressure, President Obama signed the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act into law. Under this Act the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created and in 2017 it implemented federal regulations against non-bank payday lenders for the first time. I will discuss the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s economic justification for the regulation of payday loans and the implications of new standards of abuse in consumer protection and financial regulation.
