  1. I don't think that's exactly how it works 😅 You should contact Money & Macro and the Plain Bagel if you want to get some expertise on monetary theory and finance

  2. That's not true… Your oversimplification is missing a ton of things, and is leading you down a train of thought/conspiracy, it seems, that got disproven a long time ago, when bank runs were common.

    They can't store all of the cash of all people at your local bank, because it's a massive risk, and people saying stuff like this causes bank runs. They can get the money, it just takes time to ship it.

    Hope you talk with a financial expert before publishing your video, instead of making another video that discredits yourself, like the UFO video, and you causing bank runs.
