Five years ago, I found myself in Buenos Aires, Argentina on a long-awaited vacation to the South American country. The country has a very European flavor with some 97% of its population having Euro roots. Specifically, there is a concentration of Italian and German surnames in that country.

A run on Argentine bank deposits occurred in 2001. The natives were understandably restless with the continued failure of their government’s economic policies. People wanted to flee the Argentine peso for the refuge of the USD. As you might expect, the government froze bank accounts for up to a year and limited customer withdrawals. Recently we had something similar occur in Cyprus when rumors began swirling about deposit confiscation in order to deal with the poor financial state of banks in that country.
