2011 In May 2011, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston (FRBB) released a report titled “The Bank of North Dakota: A Model for Massachusetts and Other States?” The report confirms that the Bank of North Dakota (BND) is a prudent, well-managed financial institution that serves in partnership with community banks as an effective economic backstop to credit contractions. The report also shows how the BND has evolved over the years to use its asset base to increasingly inject liquidity into its economy while maintaining conservative lending practices.
2011 The report suggests, however, that forming a state-owned bank is probably not worth the effort in Massachusetts. The Public Banking Institute respectfully disagrees, documented in a written PBI response to the report’s bulleted conclusions.
