Ellen BrownEllen Brown was on the Progressive Radio News Hour with Stephen Lendman on January 26, 2014, and here were some of the highlights:

– Her candidacy for Treasurer of California, where she intends to invest $75 billion of public funds in a public bank, instead of speculative Wall Street investments.
– The third annual Public Banking Institute conference to be held in Detroit in 2014
– Costa Rica’s banking system 80% publicly owned (Ed. They were ranked 53th most economically free out of 178 countries in the 2014 Index of Economic Freedom, ahead of Mexico and France).
– California governor Jerry Brown shocked at banks making 10 times the principal off of loans, regulated it down to four times the amount — still too high!
– The Bank of North Dakota the only publicly-owned deposit bank in the U.S. that serves the people
– Credit card companies making 2% off of purchases, and until recently, State laws prohibited retailers from charging a lower price for cash purchases.
– Her support for a new Bill of Rights to provide for housing, basic health care, etc. (This is one of the few points I disagree with her)

Public Banking InstituteThe Public Banking Institute has announced that its third annual conference will be held in Detroit in 2014.

This follows on its conferences in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and San Rafael, California.

All three sites were chosen strategically, as Philadelphia was where the Constitutional Convention took place, it was the original seat of the U.S. government, and it was where the banksters established the First (central, mostly privately owned) Bank of the United States.

San Rafael, California was chosen because of the vast population it could attract, and Detroit was chosen because of its bankruptcy proceedings that could be avoided, in part, with a strong public banking system.

Stay tuned to their site and here for further updates.
