Governments and Central Banksters around the world have proven time and time again throughout history that they simply don’t get it. They don’t get economics, they don’t get finance and they are so far out of touch with everyday people on the street that they don’t get them either.
Once again, another government has proven this point. Greece, in what some are calling an early April Fools’ joke, has mandated that ALL Greek citizens are to declare the valuables they own outside of the highly controlled and corrupt banking sector.
In particular, all citizens of Greece are to declare the following:
- Cash “under the mattress” totalling 15,000 euros or more
- Jewellery, gemstones, diamonds, etc., of value
- Whether they rent bank lockers or vaults
The above information (for anyone foolish enough to actually report it to the government), is to be entered through Taxisnet, their online tax authorities, on or before January 1st, 2016. Though you may be shaking your head in disbelief, I kid you not: this is no joke.
The country of Greece has been in a crisis for years now. It has held on by barely kicking the can down the road over and over again, but this can has now become so monstrous that the government knows it can’t be kicked much farther.
