The US congress bailed-out the banking sector, General Motors, and others with $700 Billion from TARP.
The Federal Reserve added approximately $4 Trillion to their balance sheet with Quantitative Easing and other programs in their effort to bail-out the banking cartel since the 2008 crisis.
Cyprus banks confiscated deposits, after the elite and insiders exited early, and they called it a bail-in. That confiscation is the template for future bank failures in Europe, Canada, the US and other countries.
We may eventually see similar confiscations (bail-ins) in Greek banks, as well as in Spain, Italy, Ireland, the United States, and others.
There must be a better way!
