CU System
Film director Take your money out of a bank put it into a CU
DETROIT (10/27/09)--A Michigan filmmaker is encouraging consumers to take their money out of banks and put it into credit unions. Michael Moore, film director, has released a list of 15 things every American can do to fix what Moore considers “a broken system” (The Examiner Oct. 25). Moore just released, “Capitalism: A Love Story.” Since the release of his film, Moore told the newspaper he has been asked by viewers what they can do to help. At the top of Moore’s list of five things Americans can do to protect themselves and their loved ones was to deposit money at a credit union. “Take your money out of a bank if it took bailout money and place it into a locally owned bank or credit union,” Moore said. The controversial film maker has directed movies such as “Roger and Me,” “Fahrenheit 9/11,” “Bowling for Columbine,” and “Sicko.”
