Michael says neither the White House nor the Congress can get the attention of the banks as easily as you can.
If you keep your money in one of the zombie banks, start today on the process of relocating it to a strong, community-based bank or a local credit union. Every city and town has small local or regional banks and credit unions that provide all of the same services as the multi-nationals. True, there may not be an ATM on every corner, but look where that capability has gotten us.
Michael’s proposal might be an easy AND radical proposition that just might wield Democracy’s tools AND rejuvenate power where we can see it. Plato’s revenge.
