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.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
