Federal Credit Programs for Private Industry
This program was part of C-SPAN’s “Your Money” series. Each Monday morning the last hour of “Washington Journal” is devoted to a federal program, focusing on its mission, participants, and cost.
Douglas Elliott talked about the number of ways the federal government provides grants and loan guarantees to private industries, and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. Mr. Elliott argues that when credit programs for housing, farm, business, and education are considered, the government lends approximately $10 trillion to the private industry.
