Episode 811 | Public Banks – Web Extra

Producer Megan Kamerick continues her conversation on public banking, the subject of a Sept. 27 conference in Santa Fe, with Gwendolyn Hallsmith, executive director of the Public Banking Institute, and Javier Gonzales, mayor of Santa Fe. They talk about how N. Dakota has kept its public bank free of politics and how the revenue from that bank returned $300 million to the state’s coffers.
