Ellen Brown, founder of the Public Banking Institute and author of The Public Banking Solution and Web of Debt, will be speaking here in Boston on Friday, March 31, at Encuentro 5, 9 Hamilton Place.

Doors open at 5:30 and the talk begins at 5:45. The talk is free and everyone is welcome.

Come hear about the advantages of public banking, from the Bank of North Dakota here in the US, to public banks around the world. Ellen will discuss how the privatized creation of money draws us into an endless cycle of debt, and how public banking offers not only a more sustainable foundation for “common wealth,” but could also address issues with infrastructure and protect us against the next recession.

This is a terrific opportunity to learn about public banking from one of the world’s foremost authorities. We will also be bringing people up to date on legislation filed here in Massachusetts to create a public infrastructure bank, why we need such an institution, and what you can do to help.

There will be plenty of opportunities for questions.

Encuentro 5 is not wheelchair accessible.
