What Is Driving The 'Unbanking Of America'?

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Listen to Lisa Servon, Professor of Urban Planning at the New School, discuss her new book, "The Unbanking of American" on NPR's Fresh Air. The book is an anthropological look at the world of informal banking alternatives targeted at low-moderate income communities. Dr. Servon immersed herself into this world and spent several months working a check-cashing business in the South Bronx and as a payday lender in Oakland.
