Banking On Vermont: Four Numbers in A New Report, All Of Them Good

Tue, 11/05/2013 - 1:23pm
Gwen Hallsmith of Vermonters for a New Economy joins Senator Anthony Pollina and Gund Institute researcher Gary Flomenhoft to announce a New Vermont Public Bank Study.
Imagine this: The once and future Vermont Republic establishes a Vermont Public Bank and doing so:
1. CREATES JOBS - create more than 2,500 more of them for Vermonters.
2. INCREASES CAPITAL: Add $192 million to the Gross State Product.
3. BOOSTS OUTPUT: Increase state output by $342 million.
4. DELIVERS ENORMOUS INTEREST SAVINGS: Save close to $100 million in interest over 20 years, if used to finance Vermont state capital expenditures.
Sound exciting? We think so. How can you get involved?
