Consumer borrowing has slowed somewhat from the record level we saw in June, but Americans continue to pile on the debt.

Consumer debt grew by $14.4 billion in August to $4.35 trillion, according to the latest data from the Federal Reserve. That represents a 4% increase.

This follows on the heels of a 4.8% increase in July after a record 10.6% increase in June.

It was the biggest quarterly dollar increase in household debt since 2007. In percentage terms, household debt grew by 2.1%, the biggest surge since Q4 2013.

The markets have obsessed over what the Fed is saying while almost completely ignoring what it’s actually doing.

After the June FOMC meeting, markets reacted to the hint that the Fed might start raising interest rates in 2023 instead of 2024. But of course, it didn’t move rates up from zero. And while the Fed apparently talked about talking about tapering its quantitative easing bond-buying program, it continues to expand its balance sheet at a torrid pace.
