  1. Some ask the question, isn’t Public Banking Unfair competition to existing commerce banks?
    The simple answer is no, because public banking fills a large hole in the financial markets. It taps and provides service to a totally ignored market. In addition by providing much needed capital and generating commerce activity the whole economy benefits including the banking industry.
