    A free press is a prerequisite for democracy, and objective and incisive reporting can only help low income people, redlined and excluded communities. Inner City Press/Community on the Move, as its name connotes, is also engaged in journalism, in use of the Freedom of Information Act, and has an understanding of the time and other constraints reporters are under. This page is intended to help (or, where applicable, bring balance to) journalists’ reporting.  

   For reporting about banks or the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), click here for ICP's weekly CRA Report. Click here for a description of some of ICP’s current campaigns, and here for a recent CBS MarketWatch article on the Fair Finance Watch.  Below on this page is a list of some articles.  For a less newsy approach, see "Community Reinvestment in a Globalizing World: To Hold Banks Accountable, From The Bronx to Buenos Aires, Beijing and Basle," by Matthew Lee, in Organizing Access to Capital: Advocacy and the Democratization of Financial Institutions, Prof. Greg Squires, ed., Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 2003.  Some of the articles listed below are available for free on the Internet, all are available on Lexis-Nexis and in other news data bases, or, if necessary, from ICP.

   ICP has previously published Predatory Bender, a (double) book about the inner city-relevant topics of subprime lending, and corporate fraud.  The Washington Post of March 15, 2004, calls Predatory Bender: America in the Aughts "the first novel about predatory lending;" the London Times of April 15, 2004, "A Novel Approach," said it "has a cast of colorful characters."  The Pittsburgh City Paper says the 100-page afterword makes the "indispensable point that predatory lending is now being aggressively exported to the rest of the globe." Click here for that review; click here for sample chapters, here for fast ordering and delivery, and here for other ordering information.

      ICP also has lending and other analysis of a number of banks not (for now) listed on the Current Campaigns page; contact us to receive this lending analysis or another analysis, by email (to mlee [at] innercitypress.org). ICP also advocates and reports concerning the Federal Reserve, environmental justice, global inner cities, and, since September 11, 2001, a more general Finance Watch, and more recently reports on the United Nations, where Inner City Press is accredited media.
