On Saturday the 16th of March, in an economic bailout plan supported by the EU and the IMF, the deposits in Cypriots banks were frozen. Additionally, in an unprecedented move, a percentage of those private deposits (held both by common people and business) will be seized to “help” repay some of the amount of the bailout. If you have followed the recent story of the crises in Latin America or have suffered from its consequences, this episode of the European crisis may seem terribly familiar. In this brief analysis if the Cyprus bailout I review some of the possible implications for the European Union and the world. I will argue that the conditions of the bailout create an extremely dangerous precedent for the rest of the countries in Europe, especially for Spain, Greece, Italy and Portugal. Three days after the announcement, as the protests in Cyprus and concern in the rest of Europe were increasing, it seemed that some aspects of the bailout plan could change, but even if that happens the negative effects could spillover beyond Cyprus
