Cyprus bailout reached- rich savers get raided

Reading the page on the Iceland crisis (one of the largest banking collapses by a country in history) is relevant to the Cyprus situation.
Banksters loan out 10-40 times the amount held in reserve. This is called ‘fractional’ reserve banking. Or you could call it ‘fictional’ reserve banking. Because 9 of 10 will receive loans/mortgages based on ‘fictitious’ reserves….That means based on nothing. These are standard practices worldwide. So the dirty secret is that in most countries if a majority of people pull out their money at once the system crashes since they really don’t have it and it’s just numbers on a computer screen.
