The Cyprus bank bail-in committed of early 2013 may seem like small deal to most US investors.
After all, most Americans probably couldn’t even find Cyprus on a globe. And with the mainstream media spreading the narrative that the Cyprus bail-in was a one-time event that was meant to support the bank while punishing tax dodging crooks, 99% of folks won’t think twice about the situation.
However, the reality of what happened in Cyprus is a far different matter. And the reason that this reality has not been featured as headline news is because doing so would reveal the following:
1) European politicians are both corrupt and incompetent.
2) Those meant to assess the risk of any financial institutions don’t know what they’re talking about.
3) The average citizen will be screwed while politically connected insiders will be given the means to circumvent the law.
