Your Bank, The Fourth Player In Retirement

“It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning”

~Henry Ford

For this most recent installment of the David Lukas Show, David continues with the Who’s Supporting You/ Who Can You Trust Series by talking about the fourth player in retirement: your bank.

bank-columnsJust how important of a player is your bank? Very. In fact, knowing how the banking system works is critical to responsibly planning your retirement and safeguarding your hard earned assets.

Throughout the hour David explains how banks really “hold” your money in trust. In other words, because banks are highly leveraged, they are able to loan out 90% of an account holder’s money. That means when you deposit $10,000 into your bank account, the bank can legally loan out $9,000 of YOUR MONEY! That deposit is not held in trust, as it should be.
