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.

How much did "fast track" cost the corporate elite?

It cost corporations less than $18,000 bucks per vote to get “fast track” passed in the United States Senate.

According to a recent analysis by The Guardian Newspaper, corporate members of the US Business Coalition for TPP donated more than $1.1 million dollars to Senate campaigns in the first quarter of 2015. The average Democrat received about $9,700 dollars and the average Republican raked in almost $20,000.
