Arizonans for a New Economy believes that creation of a state bank would go a long way toward making Arizona financially healthy again. Across the country, states and cities have billions of dollars sitting in rainy day funds that are held by Wall Street banks, such Bank of America, Chase, or Wells Fargo. Taxpayers don’t benefit from the money held by these big banks because when Wall Street banks invest our money, they invest it on Wall Street, and the profits go to their shareholders– not to the states, cities, or citizens. Public banks manage the state’s funds– tax revenue and other monies, including federal grants and matching funds– and invest the money in the public interest on Main Street, instead of in theshareholders’ interest on Wall Street Are you ready to learn more about public banking and how it can help Arizona businesses and people thrive? If so, you’re in luck. Arizonans for a New Economy (ANE) has planned a Jan. 8 meeting at the Mountain Vista Unitarian Universalist Church in Northwest Tucson. MVUU
