Investment for the people: Community Public Offerings - Watch full episode here: http://www.immensepossibilities.org/archives/
CPOs, “Community Public Offerings,” have now come to Oregon, allowing virtually anyone to make modest equity investments in Oregon companies. According to our guests – Heather Stafford of Sustainable Valley, Amy Pearl of hatchthefuture.org, Michael Shuman of the Post Carbon Institute -- that single change can breathe life into struggling small businesses, super-charge local economies, and offer small investors returns that until now have mostly been reserved for the wealthy. We also check back in with Will Wilkinson of the Southern Oregon Time Co-op.
