Banks and Financial Institutions

Banks and International Financial Institutions (IFIs) impact our economy, jobs and livelihoods. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank create and promote global policies that impact poverty and inequality. The business models of multinational banks, financial firms and hedge funds can affect vulnerable communities.

At Jubilee USA, we work to build a more transparent financial system. This includes establishing greater US and global standards on responsible lending and borrowing, improving debt restructuring, preventing austerity and ensuring that financial policies protect the vulnerable. At Jubilee USA, one of our core beliefs is that the people most impacted by the economy should participate in the creation of those policies.
