But Alex Horowitz, research officer for Pew's Smaller Dollar Loan Project, said the statistics in the Pew report confirm that there's scant competition in that marketplace. He said Texas' high borrowing costs in the absence of rate caps prove that payday borrowers don't shop for the cheapest deal before taking out a loan.
In surveys, 70 percent of borrowers said they used payday loans to pay bills and other regular expenses, Horowitz said. Thirty seven percent said they would have taken out the loans at any interest rate, Horowitz said.
The Pew report examined government filings by the nation's four largest payday lenders, so it offers a true comparison of the effect various state laws have on consumers, Horowitz said.
"It's from the same companies," he said.
