Community Control Of Community Capital

Download: 

The banks can't learn community development finance; nor (being global institutions) will they be taught. Why waste time on creating a Canadian Community Investment Act when we could conceivably make far more effective use of an existing network of local finance - credit unions? The author specifies five items to put on the agenda of your credit union: microenterprise finance, serving the under-served, the formation of a 'social investment centre,' community donations, and supplying banking services to the Third Sector.
