Consumers ditch credit cards as borrowing slips

The Denver Post


Consumer borrowing fell in June for a fifth straight month as households keep cutting back on credit card use.

Borrowing dropped at an annual rate of $1.3 billion in June, the Federal Reserve reported Friday. That marked the 16th drop in overall credit in the past 17 months.

The $1.3 billion June drop in borrowing was much smaller than the $5 billion decline that economists had expected. The government also revised the May decline to show a smaller drop of $5.3 billion rather than the initial $9.2 billion decrease.

Blockbuster might be approaching bankruptcy

The Denver Post


Blockbuster probably will receive a one-month reprieve from creditors this week so the video-rental chain can prepare for a possible bankruptcy filing in September, three people with knowledge of the matter said. Lenders are pushing for a prepackaged bankruptcy in exchange for the 30-day extension on debt repayment, said the people, who declined to be identified because the negotiations are private.
