"Consumer credit during the crisis: evidence from contracts" - Bank of Italy Occasional Paper

​This paper is the result of collaboration between the Bank of Italy and CRIF, and is part of the “Questioni di economia e finanza” (Issues in Economics and Finance) series. These publications are aimed at presenting studies and documents on issues relevant to the Bank of Italy and the Eurosystem.
​The analysis work published in the Occasional Paper looks at the trends in the consumer credit market during the recent financial crisis, not on the basis of a sample but on the entire loan and retail finance market, for credit lines granted between 2007 and 2013 in Italy and recorded in EURISC, the CRIF Credit Reporting System.
