The Public Banking Institute (PBI) is a non partisan think tank research and advisory organization dedicated to exploring and disseminating information on the potential utility of publicly owned banks and to facilitate their implementation. PBI s mission is to analyze U.S. and global financial events in order to explore and facilitate implementation of public banking options. In the process we are looking to quantify the true costs of financing government and public services including the costs of potential systemic risk business cyclicality and monetary instability imposed by particular methods of banking and government financing. Our goal is to leverage the historic role of publicly owned banks nationally and internationally in fostering access to cheap and readily available credit particularly as used for increasing productive capacity. Best practices and lessons learned from our research and experiences will be shared through PBI s online resources website webinars blog and in person conferences.
