Program Description

Dr. Robert Eyler provides economic insight to the new tax reform act passed late in 2017 and its potential effects on credit unions due to effects on members.  Personal taxes, corporate taxes, real estate, both homes and commercial, have all been affected in different ways by changes in the tax code.  Also, not all changes take effect right away, and there is a sunset date in place. 

How members react to these changes affects credit unions' ability to manage change.  Such changes also affect bond markets, which affect asset-liability management.  As the Federal Reserve watches these changes, the path of interest rate changes may be affected, thus pressuring net interest margin further.  Will yield curves flatten or become more steep because of these changes, if there is a change to yield curves at all?  Will credit risk change and should CUs prepare for more delinquencies?

The connections of these tax code changes to members' financial lives and effects on financial outcomes and the strength of credit unions is complex.  Dr. Eyler, as a credit union board member and an economist, breaks down the basics and provides the connections you need to see the future better.
