Financing the New Economy

An excellent report and overview appeared in a recent issue of Dollars and Sense and may be found on its website:  http://www.dollarsandsense.org/archives/2013/1113scher.html.  Written by Abby Scher and subtitled, “The New Hope in Credit Unions and Cooperation,” her report is an unusually thorough discussion of the various key actors in the world of cooperative finance:  cooperative banks, credit unions, community development financial institutions, and more.  It’s a great place to start in understanding how cooperatives are closely aligned with these finance allies, and in learning about efforts to advance their mutual interests.
