Community capital across the country

Busy week, but I wanted to post a few stories that attest to the groundswell of interest in local investing...

- A story in the High Country News about a small business in Colorado that raised $270,000 in loans from local residents (and thanks to Jeff Milchen of the American Independent Business Alliance for pointing out!)
- A piece about the wonderfully named No Small Potatoes Investment Club in Maine, which lends to the areas farmers and food producers
- And last but not least, another excellent article by the New York Times' Graham Bowley about our broken financial markets.
