PUBLIC BANKS – THE WHAT, THE WHY AND THE HOW

Are public banks a better alternative to our existing private banking model?

This 5-session course will discuss the public bank model, comparing and contrasting it to private banks to highlight marked differences between them and their implications for the community. The course will also look into past and present experiments in public banking in the United States and showcase their profound effect in our history. The Bank of North Dakota’s stellar performance during the 2008 financial crisis will be analyzed.
