hey is there a list of the most ethical credit unions or banks you would recommend? @Matt_Noyes


@mattcropp is the expert on this. ;-)

It would be great if there were a kind of "social balance sheet" ranking of credit unions in terms of their fulfillment of the cooperative principles and other measures.


@Matt_Noyes @liaizon I'd check out the Global Alliance for Banking on Values. My credit union is a member, as are several other progressive ones.


@mattcropp oh, I gave a talk in front of a gabv meeting earlier this year. Was very nice and interesting! Thanks for sharing.
