“Neoliberal economic theory assures us that what is good for the big privately-owned banks is good for society—that private ownership produces better results in that sector as in all others; but the data tell a different story. Usury banking dominates in Western countries today, but 40 percent of banks globally are publicly owned. The advantages of public over private banking are not rocket science. A government that owns its own bank can keep the interest and reinvest it locally, resulting in potential public savings of 35 to 40 percent. Costs can be reduced across the board; taxes can be cut or services increased; and market stability can be created for governments, borrowers, and consumers. Banking and credit become public utilities, sustaining the economy rather than mining it for private gain.” — Ellen Brown, The Public Bank Solution
