Banking on the Locals

Clip: Season 6 | 4m 13s

Host David Brancaccio travels to North Dakota to see how Bremer Bank, a for-profit bank with over a hundred branches in the region, has built and banked local prosperity while some other banks were imploding or collecting hand-outs. Ninety-two percent of the bank is owned by Bremer's own charity - which in turn gives the profits back to the community as grants.
