The recent financial crisis brought on by the "Too-Big-To-Fail" banks plunged the country into the worst recession since the 1930s. But while the federal government bailed out the nation’s biggest banks and corporations, the rest of the country has been left to fend for itself. Two years, six million foreclosures, and eight million lost jobs later, the financial system is not meeting the needs of America’s working families. Jared Gardner will discuss how the establishment of a state bank will help build a resilient local financial system, and transfer benefits and power to the citizens of the state.
