Public Banking: Funding the New Economy

The most recent episode of “Guns and Butter” featured a compilation of highlights from a conference on public banking in San Rafael, California. Though it was held last year it’s worth a listen and will probably become more relevant in the future. You can listen to the whole show here:

The following are two of the speeches on the program posted as videos. The first, featuring Jim Hogue, has sound problems in the beginning but is greatly improved about three minutes in. The second clip features Charlie Eaton who discusses how bankers profit off colleges while screwing over students and taxpayers.

Though she wasn’t featured on Guns and Butter, student activist Victoria Grant presented this short but concise speech breaking down the relationship between banks, corporations and governments and how they facilitate corrupt policies.
