Fed Law against using term "bank run"???

The Federal government does not take kindly when the American people use two simple words in everyday conversation, particularly when these words can easily have an adverse effect on our economy and financial system. In fact, there are laws in place to discourage the public from using the term bank run, should the ramifications of their intent cause measurable liabilities.

The Panic of 1907 for example, was actually started by financier J.P. Morgan when he falsely accused other banks not under his control that they were insolvent, and his actions eventually led the public to demand the formulation of a central bank.
