Today on Your Call: How would public banking affect local economies?

May 27, 2013

On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about public banking, which was first introduced by the Quakers in the original colony of Pennsylvania, and was later embraced in North Dakota, the only state which owns its own bank. Twenty states are considering public banking legislation. What is public banking? What solutions do public banks offer to the current economic crises? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
