The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) has democratized capital by bringing disenfranchised people into the economic mainstream. Despite its success, the CRA has not yet reached its potential. In this book, Professor Marsico proposes CRA reforms that will help it to do so. This book is relevant to people interested in studying, understanding, enforcing, complying with, and improving the CRA. It can be used in banking, community economic development, clinical, urban policy, and law and social change courses.
Richard D. Marsico is Professor of Law and Codirector of the Justice Action Center (JAC) at New York Law School.
