In this months program CUNAs Chief Economist, Bill Hampel, looks at credit union earnings: what factors go into determining the bottom line of a credit union, your net income, or your return on assets. The last several years have been really rocky for credit union earnings. In this program, Hampel examines the long-term trends that developed in credit union earnings historically. Then he explores what happened in the Great Recession more specifically, what caused net income to fall so dramatically and how it has recovered since then. Finally, he previews some of the factors that will be driving earnings for the rest of this decade.

In this months program senior economist Steve Rick will look at the ramifications of the recent Fiscal Cliff agreement, the state of the U.S. economy, and what we expect to see regarding credit union loan and savings growth in 2013. On the plus side, the permanent extension of the Bush-era tax cuts will eliminate the future tax uncertainty that engulfed households and small businesses during the recent past. On the minus side, the return of payroll tax rates to former levels may prompt members to lower their savings rate, rather than lower their spending levels. Because of this, credit unions may see lower savings growth than they might have had the payroll tax cut been extended another year. All of this and more in this months program.
