Years ago I signed up with WAMU; as a result of this current financial crisis or whatever it is, WAMU became Chase which is part of JP Morgan. In my opinion Chase and JP Morgan are part of the problem. (WAMU was too, perhaps to a lesser degree.)
I’ve started the process of switching from Chase to a locally owned credit union that offers checking, savings, online banking and more. It’s one way I’m hoping to influence the way things seem to work.
I’ve just learned of a website created by volunteers designed to help people find locally owned financial institutions. It’s MoveYourMoney.info.
Makes it easier to vote with your feet as it were.
Will you change your financial institution?
