Commercial Lending of Ohio's S&Ls

Two new laws in the early 1980s fundamentally changed the relationship between thrifts and commercial banks, allowing S&Ls to compete for the full range of household and commercial business. An examination of Ohio S&Ls shows the impact of the expanded commercial lending powers on their performance.
