The Philadelphia Public Banking Coalition has advocated for a Philly Public Bank for years and it’s finally picking up steam. Learn how this could impact you and your wallet during my interview with coalition members, Beth Finn and Stan Shapiro. Let’s keep Philly tax revenues working for Philly residents, not Wall Street investors.

Public banks belong to the people, not shareholders. In the first half of the hour we speak with Connie Bille about the benefits of access to a public bank. The only active public bank is in the state of ND but as of the recording at least 20 states or cities were exploring implementation of a public bank.

In the second half of the hour Ingrid Shepard, One Less Foundation joined to talk about how they are advocating for families and introducing individuals and families to financial literacy tools.
