Make a # pile of money and SHORT the stocks they own. Hit them in the pocketbook!
Theoretically if enough people banded together in secret and placed "puts" on all the stocks that comprise their major holdings you could sink their
empire in one trading session.
Theoretically being the operative word here... It would take an immense number of big hitters to do it and you have to figure alot of them would be
"friends" of these two families.
Other than that you can keep your money OUT of the big banks (I use a VERY small credit union myself) and minimize their liquidity. You have to
realize that the big banks need TRILLIONS to keep the shuffle happening.
That's the whole reason for the much ballihooed "Federal Reserve Overnight Funds Rate" that most folks mistakingly think is related to interest
rates you and I pay when we borrow money.
This rate is literally what one huge bank charges another huge bank to borrow, oh a couple billion, overnight to keep their balances in line with
their deposits from the day. The big shuffle...
One way to interupt the big shuffle and throw them into a tailspin would be to get say 50,000,000 people to all deposit $1,000.00 at noon and withdraw
it at 2:59 local time.
Think about it.
