Economy prompts fresh look at North Dakota's socialist bank [AP]

AP article has an interesting review of a very unique bank:
The Bank of North Dakota - the nation's only state-owned bank - might seem to be a relic. It was the brainchild of a failed flax farmer and one-time Socialist Party organizer during World War I.

But now officials in other states are wondering if it is helping North Dakota sail through the national recession.
