More than a blog, here’s the gateway to monographs, articles and opinion pieces that have appeared separately or in other publications.
Of special interest: Credit Unions, Community Development Finance, and the Great Recession, written by Cliff Rosenthal and published by the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank in 2012.
Cliff wrote a series of articles describing his departure from the National Federation of CDCUs in 2012 (Succeeding at Succession), followed by his life at the CFPB (My Life on the “Dark Side”)and finally, relations between the credit union movement and CFPB (Credit Unions and the CFPB ).
For a brief introduction to the development of the CDFI movement, try Cliff’s paper on “The Quest for Community-Controlled Capital.” It’s a paper Cliff wrote for an international conference in Berlin, Germany, September 8-10, 2015.http://archer-rosenthal.com/publications/the-quest-for-community-capital/
