Subject: Schlesinger speaking in Chicago Feb 15

Woodstock Institute and the Center for Neighborhood Technology 
are pleased to announce Tom Schlesinger will be speaking 
on February 15 in Chicago.

"A Financial Market Strategy for Working Americans"

America's financial system is undergoing an historic restructuring.  As 
Congress debates overhauling the structure of the financial services 
industry, banks are racing to implement regulatory changes.  Additionally, 
more and more resources have been coming under the control of institutions 
not accountable to communities.    

Even more momentous changes loom in the future, such as the advent of 
digital cash and the gradual denationalizeation of money.  These changes 
bear dauting consequences for the real economy while challenging 
conventional approaches to financial regulation.

It is in this context that we continue to raise questions about financial 
services for neighborhoods and local residents.

Tom Schlesinger is the founder and director of the Southern Finance Project, 
a Virginia-based research center that monirtors financial markets and policy 
issues.  He is also founder and co-director of the Financial democracy 
Campaign, a national grassroots alliance formed in 1989 to seek financial 
industry reform and a just resolution of the nation's S&L and banking crises.

Tom is uniquely qualified to present a financial market strategy to boost 
incomes, reverse growing inequality and foster economic security.
