AMIBA hosted The ABCs of Local Investing Webinar with local economist Michael Shuman on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at 4 p.m. ET. This free event is part of AMIBA’s upcoming Move Your Money Month in April.
“Americans now have $56 trillion in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, pension funds, and insurance funds—nearly all of it invested in global corporations,” said Shuman. “If you and your neighbors could shift even a small amount of that capital from Wall Street to Main Street, your local economy could flourish.”
