The American economic system is the most successful yet developed, and consumer credit has played a vital role in that economy. Consumer credit has experienced tremendous growth, and has adjusted to the demands of changing life-styles, economic needs, and geographic distinctions, as well as to the different types of consumer goods which have become available with a minimal amount of government intervention. What government intervention there has been has involved restraint and restriction. There now exists the need to improve the consumer credit industry to enable the citizens of Virginia to continue to be able to obtain both the necessities and amenities of life.
