With focused minds, persistent hearts and no money, the citizens of California overcame one of the most powerful financial and political lobbies in the state to win the legislative battle that has codified creation of municipal banks in the world’s fifth largest economy. Trinity Tran, founding leader of the movement, talks with Ellen about what it took to achieve the surprising victory which has opened the door for creation of municipal public banks in California and around the country. How would such a bank impact an historic American city like Baltimore? A recent study suggests that the opportunities are many, unique and deserve serious study. Our guest Dr. Sean Vanatta authored the report and talks with co-host Walt McRee about its recommendations.

In a remarkable exercise of democratic will and persistence, public banking advocates in California have succeeded in creating a pathway for creation of municipal public banks.  “This is a grassroots effort and it has to stay that way,” says our guest David Jette of the CA Public Banking Alliance.  David goes into more detail about how this law will facilitate creation of new public banks, while another of his colleagues, Carlos Marroquin, shares why he got involved in the first place, motivated in part by a personal experience with corrupt banking practices.  Ellen’s featured guest is Thomas Greco, a monetary theorist, author and professor who sees the only hope for escaping the tyranny of the global banking cartel to be creation of local currencies built on personal relationships and community economies.
