Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm tempted to say "so what?" If the fundamentals are sound, a bank run would be a liquidity crisis, not a solvency crisis, right? So we'd have to provide liquidity (with strings attached, of course, but we're assuming that things are properly planned for ahead of time, right?). But that doesn't cost the taxpayers money or debase the currency, does it?
