Move Your Money to Oakland

There is a new movement afoot to Move Your Money to local banks. Here’s the website with a cute movie: http://moveyourmoney.info/ This movement has been reported on in the Huffington Post, by Oakland Seen on their facebook page, and by Oakland Grown.

The Move Your Money site doesn’t cover credit unions. That’s a major omission.

So I’m starting a series about money in Oakland.  Starting with credit unions I am familiar with.

Different people need different things from their financial institutions. Some people need low minimum balances, and low fees. Some people need low loan rates. My concerns are mostly with savings and how much the institution will pay me.  There is a need for posts speaking to the other concerns. If you write them, please drop a link here, ok?

Next in the series: Patelco Credit Union

    Hey I’m interested in this. Keep posting. I can’t follow the comments, however, the display oddly in my browser. Whazzup with that?

    The odd-looking “comments” are “track-backs” where a different post references this one.
