Hard Choices: Financial Exclusion, Fringe Banks and Poverty in Urban Canada
When low-income city dwellers lack access to mainstream banking services, many end up turning to ‘fringe banks,’ such as cheque-cashers and pawnshops, for some or all of their financial transactions.
Hard Choices thoroughly integrates economic and social data on consumer choice, bank behaviour, and government policy.
Buckland demonstrates why the current two-tier system of banking is becoming increasingly dysfunctional, especially in the context of new credit products that aggravate income inequality and stifle local economic growth.
Jerry Buckland is a professor at Menno Simons College at the Canadian Mennonite University, and affiliated with the University of Winnipeg.
