1. Bank runs are simply result of intrinsic instability of Bagehotian banking system. Given the amount of smoke and mirrors covering the whole thing, as well as the degree to which (and the ways in which) economy is managed by oligarchic actors, and likely instabilities in this system as well, there’s no point to guess exactly when. It spazzed, it will spazz again.
2. Bank runs don’t really matter for a state bank (which they all are, with or without fig leaf). In the worst case, all that happens is that you see beheaded chicken running in circles, then damage control teams would pump another fountain of random inane bullshit (like >>48744
) to distract from the nature of what goes on.
They are all plugged into printing press, and will be bailed out, or whatever.
your question is how to not get screwed over by the banks
, it’s irrelevant whether your money are in cash or accounts, you are hit by inflation just as much. >>48758
3. If your real question is
“how to not get screwed over by the banks”, then bank runs are irrelevant. The obvious answer is that the only ways are to not be perceived as a target (which is probably too late for you if you are here) or move your assets out ASAP.
“Where to move your savings” is a very good question. In light of some or other SHTF on the horizon, or simply state being increasingly rabid, while the banks drop their fig leaves to shaft someone more and more. Obviously, the sooner, the better.
But since the real goal is to hide your savings from state
, the real problem is: how to do this without tipping your hand and being simply robbed, whether by state or non-state actors. At least, until the state in question gets too dysfunctional, and everyone involved will have more immediate problems.
