Banks use our public money (taxes) to invest and generate profits for themselves and their shareholders. After the real estate bubble burst due to unethical and sometimes illegal trading practices forcing the global economy into a free fall, the too-big-to-fail banks came to the American public, hats in hand, begging for help. Taxpayers provided more than a half trillion dollars to bailout the banks. Meanwhile communities across America suffered; the crash caused foreclosures, unemployment, and reduced public services, which continue to this day. Our current banking system privatizes profit and socializes risk.

As of the spring of 2010, North Dakota was the only state sporting a major budget surplus; it had the lowest unemployment and default rates in the country; and it had the most community banks per capita, suggesting that the presence of a state-owned bank has not only not hurt but has helped the local banks. In the last ten years, dividends earned by North Dakota's public bank have returned $350 million to the state's general funds. Taxpayers in North Dakota share the profits and the risk, and enjoy economic stability.

  • Great call! I hope the Justice Party will endorse Public Banking nationally, and specifically in my state – New York, where I am the NY Coordinator for the Public Banking Institute and we are trying to form a coalition to get behind assemblymember Sandy Galef’s bill A1696 (http://www.assembly.state.ny.us/leg/?default_fld=&bn=A01696&term=2013&Summary=Y&Actions=Y&Votes=Y&Memo=Y&Text=Y) to study creating a public bank in NY.
    A petition to do so is here:

  • This is Scott Baker, NY Coordinator for the Public Banking Institute
  • Hi Margaret,
    In some countries banking is done at the post office. I will pass your comments to Ellen and Rocky.

    Thanks!

    Deposit tax dollars directly into our Postal Savings Bank! -
    The PO can contract with States, Counties, Cities. -

    +PO should compete with PayPal for secure financial transactions. -
    Just like one’s mailbox is protected from intrusion. -

    Without a fedral warrant. -
    So should one’s financial tranactions. -

    The PO trades with FedEx, UPS. —
