It’s Our Money with Ellen Brown - The Mouse That Roared
A group of smart, undauntable, unpaid citizen volunteers just reaped a statistical victory for public banking in the nation’s second largest city, Los Angeles. While actually losing the total vote count, Public Bank LA got almost half the vote and delivered over 420,000 votes on a recent public banking referendum with only a couple weeks to work and virtually no money to campaign. We talk with Trinity Tran and Ben Hauck of the citizen movement behind this ballot initiative, Revolution LA, about how they did it, why they did it, what they were up against and what’s next. And we revisit a conversation with author and professor George Lakey as he talks about how citizen initiatives like Public Bank LA helped Scandinavia become one of the happiest economies on the planet.
