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.

Bank runs were often infectious, leading to economy-wide bank panics and business-cycle contractions.
