In general, the loan market even for this category of consumer loans is to be left free, with a law to prohibit an interest rate higher than the market rate.
Whether a relative rise in fixed costs can actually precipitate entrepreneurial behavior that deprives the economy of its ability to adjust production to demand. Let us look at an enterprise that either from the start or because of a changed situation does not come up to its earlier expectations.
