This is bad.  For them, I mean.  Big banks are like putting all your eggs in one basket.  Looks even worse when you realize that a) our economy is twice their size and b) the US banks are themselves too big.

Do they store lead bars instead of gold ones?

From the article: "The state owns most of the equity of China's large banks. And the government has a history of bailing them out."

In the USA or China?

It's good to see China take such a great leap forward.

Hey I bet their bank doesn't charge fees for everything.  In fact they probably pay a decent interest on savings.

And China actually puts bankers in jail for corruption! They'll never be a first world country with that attitude.
