Question: What is the origin of the word “bankrupt”?

Answer: The word “bankrupt” comes from the Italian “banca rotta,” meaning “broken bench.” In the early days of banking, people did their business at a bench in the public marketplace. If the banker ran out of money or was unfair, his bench would be broken, hence the term “bankrupt.”
