Essa pessoas não sabem o que é uma "AUDITORIA" ; ?
THIS STILL'NOT' REPORTED BY NZ MEDIA A WEEK LATER!!!
I've talked myself blue in the face to my friends, and family to get out of the banking system. I switched over to the credit union system years ago when my research led me to the fact that this system barely twitched during the '08 crash. Since it is driven on a membership basis they are far less likely to gamble like the banks do. I doubt this will protect me totally in the future, but I see it as a way to vote with my $s. I give the banksters a vote of NO confidence, and they shall NOT handle my wages, or savings!
usa attacking its own so called allies with financial psyops is great way to shoot self in foot
seems americas best performing economic sector is now global financial terrorism
USA, run your bank dry. It's your money and no one elses. Buy a safe and a shot gun.
The " penalty "must be added to all borrowers at the same % rate.Not just savers.
In my 57 years of experience, borrowing money to pay for anything other than to save your life or limb is counterproductive.
Until you've worked long and hard to earn the money, you don't have the experience to handle the responsibility.
Kill the Fed and fractional banking, legalize competing currencies, suspend the income tax for 90 days, end unemployment benefits and stand back when the the economy skyrockets!
Cyprus in urgent talks to avert financial meltdown.
M arios Mavrides, an MP and former finance minister, raised the prospect of Cyprus becoming the first to leave the euro. He told BBC2's Newsnight:
"If we cannot come up with the €5.8bn in a few days then I think we will go to the Cyprus pound. That will be the end of Cyprus in the eurozone.
We're going to exhaust all other possibilities, but what can we do? If we have no other solution we cannot leave the people without money."
