Municipal Public Banking
To synthesize the lending programs described within JFI and the Berggruen Institute’s joint series on municipal public banking, this balance sheet simulator provides a public tool to understand both the possible impacts and costs of proposed investments in affordable housing, financial justice and clean energy. Ultimately, these allocation decisions should be made democratically—as emphasized in our democratic governance frameworks briefing. Also see the series overview report here.
