Evolving Consumer Behavior: A View from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York

Consumers are an essential driver of our nation’s economy. How they behave is driven by a wide range of factors, including income, net worth, access to credit, as well as their confidence in and expectations for future economic conditions. Since the 2008 financial crisis, U.S. households’ use of debt to finance consumption has changed dramatically, leading to potentially long-lasting changes in spending behavior. Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Bill Dudley will discuss how consumer behavior has evolved over the last 10 years, with a focus on how their spending has been financed.
