Hug Your [Canadian] Banker Day


Here's why

Update: I just learned something interesting from a Canadian banker friend of mine:

  • In Canada banks are restricted to lending no more than 10 times their assets.
  • In Europe banks lend up to 20 times their assets.
  • In the United States banks lend up to 33 times their assets.
