New project website available: American Predatory Lending

A team of 15 students and 2 UNC students – most undergrads, but also grad/professional students in law, public policy, business, and interdisciplinary data science -- at Duke University, led by Lee Reiners (Director of the Global Financial Markets Center at Duke Law School), Joseph Smith (former North Carolina Commissioner of Banks), and Debbie Goldstein (Director of the Duke-North Carolina Forum) just launched a new website on North Carolina's predatory lending practices pre 2008 with data visualizations, oral histories, and policy analyses. The project will continue next year.
