You had better look at their language for “bail in” too John, as they plan on giving our bank accounts a big hair cut when the giant ponzy scam collapses.

What EXACTLY is this “giant ponzy scam” you refer to? Australia’s banks are probably to best regulated and managed in the world. Not perfect, but better than most.

Kay, the profits of our banks are all based on money printing. World wide, real jobs and consumption are down while bank profits are up. Who creates all this money from nothing ? ie our private banksters.

Cyprus was the test case in which depositors had their savings converted to bank’s worthless shares

Nearly all Western Banks are insolvent.

This is a must see. James Rickards sees a economic depression lasting 25 yrs.
