Invest in Main Street, Not Wall Street!

7 Jan

OWS encouraged individuals to take matters into their own hands and move their money on November 5th, 2011 out of  the “Bix Six” banks (Bank of America, Citi, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo) and instead, use community banks or credit unions.  

11/05/11 has passed, but it’s the New Year!, and there’s no time like the present to make a resolution to move at least one account (if you have more than one) to a local bank.  To learn more, check out “The Move Your Money” project at 

http://moveyourmoneyproject.org/

There you can find local banks or credit unions in your neighborhood, and learn more about the foundation in general (co-founded by Arianna Huffington).  According to Moebs Services (an economic research firm), more than 4 million accounts have already been moved out of big banks in the past year!

Join the movement, and make the next big bankers’ “fat bonus” check a little bit slimmer.  (Slimmer…  Hmm, that could be a resolution too! 🙂
