would be a wholly innovative form of banking and community development which
can expand the formal banking system while also increasing the community’s
financial literacy and human capital.
Furthermore, economic development funds are recycled, and actual funds
injected into the community would far exceed the seed money. Establishing such an institution in
Chinatown would result in a vast inflow of capital from China if the
