Ben Carson Doesn't Understand Bank Loans

February 4, 2015

GOP presidential aspirant Ben Carson had an interesting thought about bank loans when asked about rising interest rates and the national debt, at a closed door gathering of Americans for Prosperity at the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention. He asserted that banks have no incentive to loan people money when the interest rates are near zero.
