Finance 101: The nuts and bolts of how our economic system is financed
The financial system is based on faith (credit) in assets, such as treasury bills, gold, stocks, real estate, etc. . Wealthy individuals and institutions rely on those assets on their balance sheets for getting favorable terms on money they borrow to invest in their businesses.
Treasury bills are the foundation of the dollar-based banking system. Banks can lend out more than they have, creating credit. Hedge fund managers use futures contracts to control multiples of their investment capital. Insurance policies can be borrowed against to invest in higher return assets. Stocks can also be borrowed against, but are riskier. Crypto and bitcoin can be borrowed against, but it's important to manage risk responsibly. Leveraging assets to make more money is a common practice in banking and finance.
