The end is near... for the Euro? (Swiss bank safety deposit boxes being all booked)

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...85O0J220120625

Reuter's quite a decent source of information...

Apparently many Europeans are stashing their assets (cash, gold, jewels) in Swiss boxes.

I don't think it would help especially if those banks are also collapsing, but they seems to think their own banks will collapse sooner.


Well if the "panic" spread that's sure they will be reasons to panic.

It gives me a warm feeling to know that I don't have enough €ro's to start worrying about things like lifeboats for cash.

Good!
Maybe this is an opportunity to make an inventory and tax the bar stewards on their dodgy incomes!!

sounds sensible
you get practically no interest on money in Swiss accounts plus the risk of being denounced to a foreign tax authority,
You might as well keep it in a risk free safe deposit.
