Consumer borrowing rose in November by the largest monthly amount in 16 years, according to the Federal Reserve on Monday. Total consumer credit increased a solid $28 billion in November to a record seasonally adjusted $3.83 trillion, posting an annual growth rate of 8.8%. Economists had been expecting an $18 billion increase
What happened: Credit-card borrowing powered the increase. Revolving credit, which is mostly made up of credit-card loans, accelerated to an annual rate of 13.3% in November, the fastest pace since last December and well above the 9.9% gain in October. Non-revolving credit, which covers loans for education and cars, rose at an annual rate of 7.2% in November, the fastest pace since October 2016 and above the 5.3% rate in October. The data excludes mortgage debt.
Big picture: This is the third straight solid monthly gain in consumer borrowing. Economists said holiday-related consumer spending was strong to the end of November, providing a boost for credit card borrowing. Consumers now seem less reluctant to take on debt, which analysts view as a sign of strengthening consumer confidence.09 Jan '18 at 1:03 am #14362

Federal energy regulators have rejected Rick Perry’s power grid proposal, which would have subsidized some coal and nuclear power plants.
According to the FERC, the plan failed to show that current electricity markets are not just or reasonable, or may be a threat to grid resilience.
The rejection is a major victory for natural gas, wind, solar and other industries that compete with coal and nuclear.10 Jan '18 at 1:07 am #14381
