How Banks Create Money

I always thought that money was created by Government and banks just deal with it in largely the following way - take money from depositors and lend it on high interest rates while giving a small share of this interest rate to the original depositor.

It seems this was done a very long time back. Now, banks need to have almost no money from the depositors in the vault to give someone a loan. They "create" money on the go. Sounds incredulous?... watch this video.

This was news to me... Did any MBA's or people working in the financial sector know about this?

I saw this video years back

I saw this video years back and was amazed. My father had actually explained these concept to me when i was a kid, but these video definitely did put blocks nicely.. :).. Creating money out of thin air..
