Life in the cash economy for “underbanked” Americans

Karla Murthy reports on the financial fringe. Nearly 20% of low income US households are "underbanked," according to the FDIC. But is providing access to traditional, mainstream financial services the best solution for everyone? A professor does double duty as a New York City check casher and discovers that banks might not be the best choice for everyone.
