Credit-Card Laws' Unintended Consequences [TheStreet]

Friday, February 26, 2010 - 7:49 AM
From TheStreet
The Credit CARD Act took effect this week, putting protection in place for consumers. But the law has resulted in unexpected fallout that might hurt more than it helps.
Two of the unintended results listed are probably familiar with many here: 1) new fees (like the new annual fees at Citi) and 2) reduced rewards.

maybe we consumers will get a clue, and the CC providers will have maneuvered themselves right out of business.
