BANK RUN

A situation in which a relatively large number of a bank's customers attempt to withdraw their deposits in a relatively short period of time, usually within a day or two. While common throughout the 1800s and early 1900s, government deposit insurance has largely eliminated banks runs in the modern economy. Historically a bank run was prompted by fears that the bank was on the verge of collapse, causing deposits to become worthless. Ironically a bank run often caused the bank to fail. Bank runs were often infectious, leading to economy-wide bank panics and business-cycle contractions.

How do we know, like the name of the long-running game show, if "The Price is Right?" How are retail prices set and do they really tell us the value of a product?

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time wandering around the shopping mall trying to buy either a how-to book on fine dining or a coffee cup commemorating the first day of winter. Be on the lookout for florescent light bulbs that hum folk songs from the sixties.
