Move Your Money

Abby Zimet

Hoping to end the era of Too Big To Fail, an impromptu group has
started an effort to move their money, such as it is, out of Wall
Street banks and into community banks that might actually share some of
their values. More on this modestly brilliant idea here.

"Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you're talking
about... they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in
this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live
and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath?" - James Stewart as
George Bailey in "It's A Wonderful Life."
