Q: Who would benefit from a public bank?


  Taxpayers, who will benefit from both the profits the bank makes and the services the bank offers.
Students, who can access low interest education loans from the bank. Since Vermont would control it, we could also offer flexible repayment terms for people who go into public service and education, so our young people are not saddled with unreasonable debt.
Homeowners, who could get reasonable mortgages and home loans from the bank.
Entrepreneurs will have access to credit lines, loans, and other forms of finance to help their
businesses succeed.
Municipalities:  the bank can offer competitive interest on public deposits and lower cost financing
for public works.
