I would remind everyone that the 3rd order polynomial trend lines that I have used in this chart are not known for their predictive powers.

Somebody else other than commercial banks must be making those loans. 2011 & 12 non-residential fixed investment structures up 2.1% & 12.7%.

2011 & 12 .5% & 12.9% residential from yesterday's GDP rep.

Q1'13 & Q2'13 non-residential net to zero(owie that's bad) but residential 12.5% % 13.4%.
