Public Banking 2013 -- Funding the New Economy
Sunday, June 2, 2013 at 1:00 PM - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM (PDT)
San Rafael, CA
How often do you get a chance to join with other creative minds discussing how best to redesign the banking systems of nations, in ways that would create new prosperity for millions and help to rebuild local economies?
This year, just once.
Join pioneering policy makers, civic leaders, banking entrepreneurs, innovators and ordinary citizens interested in learning about one of the most critical undertakings of our time: creating a truly prosperous, democratic and sustainable new economy.
On Sunday night, June 2nd from 7 - 9:30pm, Matt Taibbi will speak on "Griftopia: Bubble Machines, Vampire Squids, and the Long Con That Is Breaking America." He will join Ellen Brown, Author of Web of Debt and her book (newly available on 6/2/13) The Buck Starts Here, Gar Alperovitz, Author of What Then Must We Do?, and Birgitta Jónsdóttir, member of Iceland's Parliament, in a discussion of how we can move from a two-tiered justice system (one favoring the financial elites and one for the rest of us) to a more just and democratic system where we can reclaim our economic sovereignty from Wall Street banks and the US Congress.
The Funding the New Economy Conversation is Sunday night only -- a one-time educational, media and cultural event, also featuring the music of slack key guitarist Makana and singer Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, the "Voice of the People."
Funding the New Economy Conversation registration is available separate from the conference, for those who have time to only attend on Sunday evening.
Don't miss the Public Banking Conference 2013: Funding the New Economy, in San Rafael, CA, June 2-4. We will explore one of the core foundations of successful economies around the world: a distributed network of public banks that operate in the public interest of each respective community.
Sunday -- Public Banking Perspective and Background
Monday -- Public Banking Policy and Issues
Tuesday -- Public Banking Roadmap and Planning
Full Public Banking Conference registration includes Sunday Evening "Funding the New Economy" Conversation, Monday lunch and Monday evening reception, and Tuesday lunch.
When & Where
Public Banking Institute
The Public Banking Institute (PBI) was formed in January 2011 and is a national educational non-profit organization working to achieve the implementation of public banking at all levels of the American economy and government: local, regional, state, and national.
We are part of the New Economy movement and are steadily advancing innovative short and long-term solutions to the damage caused by the Wall Street cartel and a dysfunctional banking system; and are regularly called on to provide expertise in subjects as diverse as bank capitalization, applicable banking regulation, governance, loan portfolio makeup, risk management and the newly proposed U.S. Postal Savings Bank.
Our vision is a national network of public banks, administered as public utilities that serve the public interest, run by public servants, providing transparency and accountability to the public.
Affordable and sustainable credit, locally generated and locally directed is the key to rebuilding a lasting and broadly shared prosperity for the American people.
