Oh look, you're wrong again! Government passed a law that restricted financial services companies from engaging in certain transactions and from charging fees and interest on certain products. So now, only people with great credit can qualify for loans with reduced rate since banks cannot take as much risk. So fewer people can get loans / leases and those who do will pay higher rate to compensate for potential losses that cannot be offset by something else.
