Banks use a process called 'fractional reserve banking' which enables them to loan more than they have on deposit to cover the loans. They then charge interest on money they don't have. Through this process, banks lend out at least ten times more than they have on reserve, which reduces the value of money and lends to inflation. If we behaved like banks, we would be charged with fraud.
