Two amazing revelations to me from this video.

1) Banks do not take "deposits". Banks borrow money from the public. This is the official legal reality.

2) Banks do not loan money. Banks purchase securities. When the bank says it is lending you money, in fact it is buying a bond from you. Again, this is the official legal reality.

What this means is that all current banking regulation is totally ineffective, because the legal reality is not reflected in the regulation.
