This was some of the greatest news we have read in a while. There are 2 Public Banking movements in NY City. The Article explains the differences: my take being one completely divests from Wall Street help low income cash checks, investing green and in worker coops. The other a combo with some Wall Street investment. Public Banks to me just look like common sense way to invest in ourselves. Can be done at city and state levels, like North Dakota has had since 1919. I find much potential in Belgium's Bank at Post, a 50-50 Public-Private Belgium-styled set up.
