Coming to your financial institution in the near future...
People around the world are slowly losing faith in fiat currency, and the system that supports it. Japan, ~20% devaluation over several months; Venezuela 40% devalution overnight; British sterling, on the cusp of a 'Japanese-esque' devaluation, currently down 7% over the past 6 months.
Now money in a Cypriot saving's account, up to 10% is being seized. This is only the beginning. This sets a huge precedent. If I was living in the eurozone now, particularly in one of the PIIGS nations, I'd be looking to remove all of my savings from the banks immediately.
What was once considered "safe" is no longer safe. Holding major fiat currencies, particularly within large banking institutions exposes one to significant risks.
This is amazing...
