    Hey all - interested in discussion: What do you think should be the new role banks should assume regarding small business/society over the next 10 years?

    Perhaps I need to be a little more thought-provoking with this.  I believe that people have developed a fundamental disconnect in their minds regarding what money is vs. what money can do.  People have come to perceive money as more of a number and less as a means to an end.  Consequently, I think banks need to reattach people to what money actually means to them as opposed to just money as an end in and of itself.  Banks should function as a tool; not that they don't already but people need to think of banks more as means of accomplishing an end - thoughts?
