Are All G20 Bank Depositors Exposed to a Cyprus Style Seizure of Deposits for a 'Bail-in?' / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Jesse

Dave from Golden Truth has let me know of an interesting quote from an article by Eric Sprott titled Caveat Depositor which *could* explain why countries like New Zealand and Canada are quietly tilting towards seizing bank deposits to recapitalize failed banks.

France Stumbles Towards Political Meltdown / Politics / France

By: Andrew_McKillop

THE CAHUZAC CRISIS
France woke up Wednesday 3 April to the image of the country’s former budget minister and tax czar Jerome Cahuzac looking haggard and shaken on the front pages of all the leading dailies, and all TV news stations following his final and forced admission that he had repeatedly lied about secret accounts in Switzerland and Singapore, and his medical sector business dealings also using tax havens, as well as potential grave charges such as imported beyond-date medical products that may have been re-labelled and sold in France.

Bank Depositors Take Your Money and Run / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Fred_Sheehan

It is a wonder of the times that, in matters of money, such trust endures when those in whom it is invested work so hard to demonstrate they will squander or confiscate it. Both money and trust. At the very least, the mandarins have made no attempt to hide their inability to think and act beyond today's headlines. Every day is writ anew, with complete ignorance of previous decrees and assurances.

America's Long War on North Korea / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

On July 27, 1953, the Korean War ended. An uneasy armistice persists. The heavily fortified 2.5 mile Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separates North and South. Occasional incidents occur.

Truman's war never ended. Its origin was misreported. IF Stone's Hidden History of the Korean War explained.

Monthly Review co-founders Leo Huberman and Paul Sweezy wrote in the preface:

The New “Argo: Evil North Koreans, White House In Latest Hollywood Fear Vehicle / Politics / Propaganda

By: Danny_Schechter

New York, New York: The trend towards movies ripped from the news, or perhaps ripping off the news continues.

Olympus Has Fallen is the latest in the popular  “learn to fear thy enemy even more than you did before” category,  as director Antoine Fuqua visualizes a story that can’t be more topical with the White House (Secret Service Code: "Olympus") occupied by a North Korean terrorist fanatic and his barbaric followers.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Tuesday, Mick and Mairead Philpott, along with Paul Mosley were found guilty of the manslaughter of their six children in May 2012 in what amounted to the culmination of a botched attempt to be in receipt of increased benefits payments and be given a larger council property by burning down their existing property.

When It Comes Time to Steal… They’re Coming After YOUR Money / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Graham_Summers

Cyprus should scare the living daylights out of everyone.

Cyprus has shown us that when things get bad enough in Europe, bureaucrats will STEAL money from the people. That is bad enough as it completely goes against the central tenants of Capitalism and Democracy. Not to mention it also targets the wrong people (average citizens) instead of the banks that created this whole mess.

The Technocracy Plague / Politics / Social Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

CONFUSED ORIGINS
Theories about how Technocracy emerged - and became so powerful it is now a dominant theme in Europe's unraveling macrame player's nightmare mix of economic, financial and political crises - are as confused as its true origins. What we can be sure of is that defenders of what are basically unelected Old Boy administrators like to give their Technocrats a classic pedigree, claiming it can be traced back to Ancient Greece and Rome.

Cyprus Crisis the Story of All Western Nation-states / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Peter_Schiff

The news of the month comes from the large Mediterranean island of Cyprus, where Keynesian economic planning left the economy facing complete bankruptcy. The result was an unprecedented step forward in the financial collapse of the West: direct forfeiture of bank deposits.

Despite official protestations to the contrary, this fallout will spread to a bank near you.

Canadian Bank Deposits As Safe As Cypriot Deposits / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Jeff_Berwick

Rest easy, Canadians, for your bank accounts are going to be made as safe as those bank accounts in Cyprus. Just take a look at the Canadian government's budget plan for 2013, particularly pages 144 and 145 of Economic Action Plan 2013. There the Canadian government promises to use Canadian deposits to save "systematicaly important" banks (emphasis ours).

Cyprus Kills the Myth That European Monetary Union Is Benign / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: John_Mauldin

This piece from Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is about as hard-hitting an analysis of Cyprus as I have read and really makes an interesting introduction to this week’s Outside the Box. No messing around:

Capital controls have shattered the monetary unity of EMU. A Cypriot euro is no longer a core euro….

The complicity of EU authorities in the original plan to violate insured bank savings – halted only by the revolt of the Cypriot parliament – leaves the suspicion that they will steal anybody’s money if leaders of the creditor states think it is in their immediate interest to do so.

Solar Cycle Warnings / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

RECORD LOW SUNSPOT NUMBERS
For reasons including "pure politically correct", NASA has fought a losing battle - against reality - on the subject of Global Warming, which it feels obliged to believe in as a "scientifically correct" theory. Linked to this, quite directly, NASA has also battled against reality  on the subject of sunspot frequency, size, location on the Sun's surface and other variables linked to sunspot cycles in this present Cycle 24 of approximately 11-year-long cycles. These have been accurately recorded since Cycle 1 set by convention between astronomers as starting in Feb 1755.

Ron Paul on the Great Cyprus Bank Robbery / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The dramatic recent events in Cyprus have highlighted the fundamental weakness in the European banking system and the extreme fragility of fractional reserve banking. Cypriot banks invested heavily in Greek sovereign debt, and last summer's Greek debt restructuring resulted in losses equivalent to more than 25 percent of Cyprus' GDP. These banks then took their bad investments to the government, demanding a bailout from an already beleaguered Cypriot treasury. The government of Cyprus then turned to the European Union (EU) for a bailout.

What Have Central Bankers and Governments Learnt From Cyprus Crisis? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: DK_Matai

Since 'The Great Unwind' began in 2007, a lot of water has passed under the bridge. Yet, what is extremely important now is to focus attention on the most recent bank bail-ins by way of bailouts!  No matter what the authorities say, what has been learnt cannot be unlearnt:  the dangerous bail-in cat is now finally out of the bag!  It remains to be seen how big and predatory this new cat can become.
