Hi Dennis check out
The Public Banking Institute.
I think banks controlled by local townships and city governments may have the opportunity to reinvest in the community to make things better for everyone living there without paying interest to big banks.
If you are curious about it research the site.
Hi Chris. Sorry for not answering sooner. I have been away from home, out hiking for a few days where there is no signal. I have studied several monetary systems over the years. Local created community currencies seem like the best stepping stone to a money less society. They are legal and no state has to vote on them. Ithica New York has had theirs in operation for years. Seems like a safer and better system than debt based government currency.
I used to have a lot of interests in all kinds of solutions to fix humanities ills. Think at this point I have about given up. I think humanity has set a course of own self destruction. What I once saw as problems I think now are predicaments. Hope I am wrong. Mark Twain once said. " If Voting Worked They Would Let us Do it. I say. " If Voting worked we would not be in this mess."
At this point I am just making the most out of the time I have left spending as much time out in nature as I can.

Look at about time 38:00 about credit and hackers.
Los Angeles voters rejected a ballot measure that would have allowed for the creation of a city-owned bank — a major setback for supporters of public banking and for City Council President Herb Wesson, who had made the bank one of his priorities.
Measure B, which would have amended the city charter to allow for the establishment of a “purely commercial” enterprise, received the support of only 42% of voters. It needed a simple majority to pass.
Backers of the measure say they didn’t have the time or resources to run a winning campaign and that Wesson and the City Council put it on the ballot before they were ready.
“I think this could have used a lot more resources, and more time, and more concrete commitment from city leaders to the idea of a public bank,” said David Jette, legislative director of advocacy group Public Bank L.A. “If we’re going to seriously consider this, it’s going to take more than a quick ballot referendum and a few dozen incredibly dedicated activists.”
Jette said he hoped to have at least a year to educate voters about the notion of public banking. Instead, the measure was added to the city ballot just four months ago. What’s more, the Yes on B campaign raised only $44,000, not nearly enough to finance a meaningful citywide effort.

For some reason your link isn't coming through. I'll see as I update my operating system if it works.
I don't know how I missed this video before.
I couldn't agree more with the ideas in the video.
