Cyprus: Crumbling Property Rights

By: Gordon Long | Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Sinking Ships

The endless EU Bank Stress Tests ALL Cleared Cypriot Banks - Why? How Could This Be? The problems have been clear for a long time as the charts reviewed in this video point out.

Two weeks ago there was no indication of the urgency of the problem, then suddenly Cyprus is in crisis? Why? What was the catalyst? The short answer is the EU's ELA was pressuring the Cypriot government and it 'leaked' that the government was considering a depositor tax. Was this a planned leak? The financial world is now thrust into a dilemma over the sanctity of property rights, due process of law, unlawful confiscation and the meaningless of deposit insurance. A perfectly executed media event if the goal was to weaken these impediments to the next stage of Financial Repression.

There is much more going on here than what the media is hyping and focused on.

Euro Laundering Landing Spots

Sequence of Solutions Offered:

PLAN A - Steal Cash from Depositors (Wealth Tax Versions 1 & 2)

PLAN B - Steal Cash from Pension Plans, Sell Sovereign Assets & Facilities to Russia

PLAN C - A Solidarity Fund (CCO- Collateralized Cypriot Obligations) to buy Good Bank/Bad Bank with associated Capital Controls implemented to guarantee investors.

PLAN D - Double Dip on Large Depositors over €500,00 (12.2%) and €100,000 (9.46%).


Cyprus should never have been allowed to have a banking sector that was 7 X times (below) the economy with low levels of equity and engaged in risk assets. The EU Bank Stress tests have been shown to be the fraud they were.

Banking Seven-Times Bigger Than Economy

This suggests there are still major hidden problems across the entire EU.
