According to the latest figures out of Google Trends, Americans have been searching for the term “bank run” in record numbers in recent days, outstripping the level of concern displayed following the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008.
The search volume index on Google for “bank run” in the United States region peaked at an all time record level on May 13 and has hovered around this high ever since.
The volume has not been anywhere near this level since the depth of the economic crisis in early 2009 and the current numbers easily dwarf the number of Americans who were searching for “bank run” in the aftermath of the 2008 Lehman Brothers collapse.
