Investing: Why banks keep failing in this environment
The current financial system is a fractional reserve banking system, which means banks lend out more money than it has in its reserves. If customers withdraw their money all at once, banks cannot cover the amount owed.
With fears of financial instability in the banking system, wealthy people (who are aware of the banking system) are moving their money to too-big-to-fail institutions to protect it along with a slow drain of money from the banking system to alternative assets such as bitcoin, stocks, real estate, and gold.
Well known economic experts have been warning of a potential banking crisis, and now that it is here, people are scrambling to figure out what to do with their money long term to counteract the potential inflation that’s speculated will be needed to fix the current system.
