Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Cypriot banking sector was - and is - a cancer. Having a finance sector that pays nine times the interest of everyone else, and is holding assets 8 times your gdp is madness. This move does not end this state of affairs.
It does damage the savings of everyone in Cyprus, makes whole bondholders that should not be made whole, and undermines the faith in deposit guarantees across the continent. It is vile end-to-end. Evil, embodied in accounting.
