I do remember the run on the money markets in 2008.
If you're looking for people rushing to the banks to pull out their cash, you're not going to find it. We kind of put a whole new section of the federal government together to prevent such things, which worked as it was supposed to even as some of our largest banks were failing.
Do you not think a traditional (as you have in mind) run on the banks occurs as WaMu, Wachovia, et al, fail without the FDIC and others there to back regular people's deposits, and without constant assurances (and demonstrations) from all the relevant players that deposits were secure?
Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
