It’s almost spooky to see this play out.  Last week, the idea of taking deposits was floated in Cyprus.  An uproar ensued (the banks are still closed there).  Cypress appears to have rejected the idea but I suspect it’s more tabled than rejected for the moment.  I wrote that it doesn’t really matter as Pandora’s box has been opened.  I did not expect to hear less than a week later the open admission this precedent will be acted upon in other regions, “if necessary”.  I thought they’d give it a month or so, at minimum.  I was wrong.

and then they came for the money.  This isn’t going to end well for the Euro.
