Why Banks Fail So Many Americans—and a Possible Solution

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

In her new book How the Other Half Banks: Exclusion, Exploitation, and the Threat to Democracy, Associate Professor Mehrsa Baradaran traces the history of banking in America to show how trends including deregulation and the consolidation of banks have resulted in a banking system that, while enjoying government support in the form of deposit insurance, interest-free loans, and bailouts, has no incentive to serve Americans who most need small loans. The solution to this problem, Baradaran argues, is found in every ZIP code: the United States Post Office.
