Kat Taylor:

We lean into a renewable, just economy. Principled finance is what we need more than anything to cure our world, and we must never separate social justice from environmental well-being, because when we do, one or the other loses out and divides us against ourselves.

A public bank is even more like crowd-funding, and voting, because, essentially, we are voting with our money, since we elect our representatives based on our values, and we hold them accountable to operationalizing those values, not only through legislation, but perhaps, through the state spending activities, including banking, especially. A state public bank would additionally bring all that economic activity in-house, and keep our money in the circular economy, here, place-based, instead of exporting it to Wall Street that anonymizes and concentrates wealth in the hands of a few super predators of the financialized economy.
