As we have been noting, the “collapse/ bail-in” formula first implemented by Cyprus in dealing with bank crises has been embraced as a template by global elites.

For those of you who are new to this, the timeline in Cyprus is as follows:

· June 25, 2012: Cyprus formally requests a bailout from the EU.

· November 24, 2012: Cyprus announces it has reached an agreement with the EU the bailout process once Cyprus banks are examined by EU officials (ballpark estimate of capital needed is €17.5 billion).

· February 25, 2013: Democratic Rally candidate Nicos Anastasiades wins Cypriot election defeating his opponent, an anti-austerity Communist.

· March 16 2013: Cyprus announces the terms of its bail-in: a 6.75% confiscation of accounts under €100,000 and 9.9% for accounts larger than €100,000… a bank holiday is announced.

· March 17 2013: emergency session of Parliament to vote on bailout/bail-in is postponed.

· March 18 2013: Bank holiday extended until March 21 2013.

· March 19 2013: Cyprus parliament rejects bail-in bill.

· March 20 2013: Bank holiday extended until March 26 2013.

· March 24 2013: Cash limits of €100 in withdrawals begin for largest banks in Cyprus.

· March 25 2013: Bail-in deal agreed upon. Those depositors with over €100,000 either lose 40% of their money (Bank of Cyprus) or lose 60% (Laiki).

The most important thing we want you to focus on is how lies and propaganda were spread for months leading up to the collapse. Then in the space of a single weekend, the whole mess came unhinged and accounts were frozen.

One weekend. The process was not gradual. It was sudden and it was total: once it began in earnest, the banks were closed and you couldn’t get your money out (more on this in a moment).

The latest example of this template being used occurred in the Honduras last month.
