CSUSB finance professor interviewed about guaranteed-approval credit cards

James Estes, CSUSB professor of finance, was featured in WalletHub's piece about guaranteed approval credit cards. He discussed whether companies do issue truly guaranteed credit cards, and whether consumers should trust guaranteed credit card offers that don’t require a credit check.

Estes said some banks and card issuers offering such cards may require direct access to a consumer’s savings or checking account, and may also charge a high interest rate.

“What the issuers want is to have the consumer run up a debt and make partial payments at a high rate of interest for the longest time possible making the accounts extremely profitable,” Estes said.

Most people living in San Bernardino County like their community, but they’re less confident in the people they elect to lead them and they worry about crime, according to results of the 2018 Inland  Empire Annual Survey.

The public opinion poll from the Institute of Applied Research and Policy Analysis at Cal State San Bernardino found that 62 percent of local residents view the county as a “very good” or “fairly good” place to live, down from 70 percent who felt that way in 2017, according to the survey.

“I’ve always felt that San Bernardino County gets a bad rap from the press in Los Angeles,” said Cal State San Bernardino Professor Barbara Sirotnik, director of the Institute of Applied Research and Policy Analysis.

“People think of San Bernardino County as not a great place to live, yet over time two thirds of residents in the county think it’s a very good or fairly good place to live.”
