Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ttiuriday, V, THE IHHBRIDOt MMAID 8 Business Cars and credit go together By IRVING C. Canadian Press Husincss Krtilor TORONTO (CP) Cars and credit. They have a lot in com- mon. The big three auto makers in Canada report increased sales during February, some by more than 20 per cent. Consumer credit, meanwhile, also continues to grow, and loans for car purchases arc iak. ing up an ever-larger portion ol Ihc total. "The growth of consumer credit lias been a striking fea- ture of the last 20 years in Can- says (he Canadian Bank- ers' Association. "The amount outstanding per capita in 1950, in I960, in and is estimated at about today." Consumer credit is just what the name implies credit ad- vanced to individuals. That would cover, for instance, the installment purchase of a car or an air conditioner. The chartered banks now are the largest source of such credit, providing about half the total, although (hoy didn't get into the business in a big way until 1954. Revisions to the bank- act that year opened up nevi avenues for the banks. By the end of 1971 the banks had S6.5 billion outstanding in personal loans, accounting for about 31 per cent of the total general loans of the banks. MANY FOR CAHS Automobile Joans are a major field. Says the bankers association: "Although the proportion of con- sumer loans for other purposes is increasing rapidly, loans lo buy cars have risen at the fast- est rate and now constitute more tlian 24 per cent ot the otal. "It is estimated that the banks financed about two-fifths of lotal consumer credit oul standing for motor vehicles n: 1971, compared with only one :ifth in 1961." Indications from another source are that the demand for consumer credit, will continue lo TJie latest survey of consume Buying intentions conducted b> :he Maclean-Hunter Researc! Bureau shows an increadinj numhcr of people planning t purchase cars, homes am major appliances. "Retail sales data from Sta tistics Canada in recent month reveals an upsurge in cousumu spending, especially on durabl goods. Based on what consun ers say they plan to buy in th next six months, the cash regis ters will continue to jingle." F-M Trust Beef futures WfNNIPEG beef futures close Wednesday.
