schestowitzThe Cyprus experiment failed; for now. But they will try to do it again. They will tell you that "They are is no other way" and "If we don't do this there will be an uncontrolled bankruptcy". "There will be total collapse". That's what our politicians told us. Lies!

schestowitzAfter the strict " NO " of Cyprus MPs I think the collapse of #Cyprus banks now is 'inevitable'. The day banks will reopen lots of money will get transferred to other countries and what is most urgent now is to find a way to protect savings of the normal Cypriots. Due to european laws savings are guaranteed up to 100 K by the government of Cyprus that doesn't have the money when banks collapse. My idea would be to let the Mar 20 10:06
schestowitzbanks crash but use money from ESM to protect ordinary Cypriots savings and help the government of Cyprus to finance the needs.Mar 20 10:06
