Community Development Banks

This is a presentation to the Minsky-Levy Summer Conference in 2014 on the topic of community development banks. I discuss how Hy Minsky and the Levy Institute became involved in the Riegle Community Development and Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994. I discuss the Institute’s proposal for a nationwide system of community development banks and our policy briefs on the Community Reinvestment Act and on the role of factoring companies in providing financing for small and growing businesses. The policy briefs may be downloaded by clicking on the images below.
