Banking / Finance

The banking and financial system must serve people and the real economy. Banks should not speculate with deposits and exploit their customers, but should safeguard deposits and provide credit for individuals, farms and businesses. The Citizens Party will separate traditional banking from speculation, stop the bail-in of deposits, avert a housing and financial crisis by auditing the banks to restructure their debt while keeping families in their homes through a foreclosure moratorium, and establish a national bank to direct credit into public infrastructure and productive industries.
