Last week I had a lengthy conversation with a prospective SC State Senator. When I tried to tell her about the North Decota State Bank, she was enthousiastic and wanted more info. So I used the Contact tab @ NDBank.gov

Within half an hour I got this reply:

Thank you for your interest in Bank of North Dakota. I am happy to provide you with some recent independent research of our model and other website information.

The following are links to the research paper out of Boston and expert testimony out of Vermont.
