The country is in trouble because of the social programs and maybe because of government pensions.
Thats only very small part of a problem.

Yea if anyone in at least southern Europe doesnt take out thier money while they still can, I think you should have your head examined. This could get really ugly.

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.

Yeah, that would be supersmart. Taking all the money out of the banks so there will definitely be a collapse. Then everyone will be RICH.

Who comes up with these stupid one liners? Cmon...

Well the attitude of the EU certainly is creating a self fulfilling prophecy...

Everyone has a right to protect their savings,if there is a run on the Banks,then the blame lays entirely with the EU.

Lets put it this way,if I had my savings in a Portuguese or Spanish bank I would be removing it.Remember,every time your Country goes for help from now on,the EU will goose step in and dip into your bank accounts.

And where exactly would I put my savings?

I live in Portugal, I work here, my family is here. My one option is to emmigrate to another country, but that means leaving everything behind, my house, car, family maybe. those are not options when one is part of the local population instead of a visitor or an investor.

Agreed, the EU and Cyprus definitely handled this very poorly.
Fearmongering is never the way to go. But I never read anything about the EU demanding Cyprus to touch ppl their savings below 100 000 euroos. So im guessing that was Cyprus their huge mistake. Was it a bluff ? I dno. I think they're just as lost as everybody else.

I don't get the protest of the younger generation in Cyprus either. They're blaming the Germans and especially Merkel. Like she single handedly corrupted their entire financial system throughout the years.
It's the older generation that screwed the younger generation. And by proposing a bank run they're gonna do it twice. So if they have any sense left, they take the offer and try to make the best of it. it's time to rebuild, not nag about past mistakes.
