Public Banking Conference: June 2-4, 2013 – You’re invited to trillions of dollars!

Public Banking Institute is having our 2013 conference in San Rafael (Northern California) on June 2, 3, 4 to publicly present solutions in banking and money worth tens of trillions of dollars to Americans.

You literally have nothing more valuable to attend to (registration info here).

Among public banking’s available benefits:

Each of the above topics will have its own article to explain in detail within the context of public banking, along with an open letter to economics teachers/professors, and a final call to the public for their action. Those links will be added at my hub articles at Washington’s Blog and as I complete them.

Our tentative schedule:

Sunday — Public Banking Perspective and Background

Sunday’s schedule begins at 1pm for some of the very best public speakers of our day:

Discussion focuses on how we move from a two-tiered justice system (one favoring the financial elites and one for the rest of us) to reclaim 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, featuring the music of slack-key guitarist Makana and singer Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, the “Voice of the People.” Special guests include 13-year-old Victoria Grant, public speaker extraordinaire.

Funding the New Economy Conversation registration is available separate from the conference for those who have time to only attend on Sunday evening.

Monday — Public Banking Policy and Issues

Monday’s schedule explores 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. Speakers include Tim Canova, Maine State Treasurer Neria Douglass, Ellen Brown, with case studies on public banking, Germany’s Energiewend, and Hurricane Sandy.

Tuesday — Public Banking Roadmap and Planning

Roadmaps for solutions include funding hard and soft infrastructure that health care, education, and renewable energy.

“The recent (2012) Public Banking conference held in Philadelphia offered a message that is at once so simple – but also so bold – it is hard for most Americans to pause long enough to understand how profoundly their thinking had been corralled by the masters of finance – in ways far, far, far more insidious and powerful than even the latest financial crisis suggests.”Gar Alperovitz, Lionel R. Bauman Professor of Political Economy at the University of Maryland, co-founder of the Democracy Collaborative, author of America beyond Capitalism.
