Are Banks Lending?

At least one sign that the US banking system is significantly healthier than it was a few years ago is that loans have continued to grow steadily in 2012.  Several years ago, we spent a lot of time concerned about whether and when US banks would ever start lending again and why they weren't lending.

The Y/Y increase in loans is slower than it has been in the past, but at least its positive and shows that banks are getting back to business as usual.
