Just a quick plug, in case you care... the citizens of the small nation of Cyprus have had 10% of the value of their savings accounts seized over the weekend to bail out bad bets on Greek debt... not a voted tax, but literal confiscation of funds to cover bad bets that should otherwise send a financial entity into BK immediately.
This is the test model... will the citizens stand for it? Would you, if you were told that your bank was closed until "further notice" and everything you thought you had "saved" was immediately reduced by 10% on the whim of a government?
Do you think it can't happen here? Do you think the IRS doesn't have a 100% read on your retirement account?
Things to think about...
