In conjunction with Strike Debt Bay Area
Mehrsa Baradaran talks about her new book How the Other Half Banks: Exclusion, Exploitation, and the Threat to Democracy

How the Other Half BanksHow the Other Half Banks is a history of banking for the masses in the United States, the story of how it has failed in the last thirty years - to be replaced by predatory payday lenders and their ilk - and the case for Postal Banking (find out about this!)  as the way to once again provide banking services at reasonable rates for the tens of millions of unbanked and underbanked.

Mehrsa Baradaran is Associate Professor at the University of Georgia School of Law
