European politicians are "crazy" to have offered pledges of blanket deposit protection for bank savers and governments cannot afford it, Czech Finance Minister Miroslav Kalousek was quoted as saying on Tuesday.
His comments followed a pledge by Germany to guarantee all deposits in its banks and similar responses of Austria, Denmark and Sweden, days after Ireland took more draconian deposit insurance measures to restore confidence in its banking system.
"No government in Europe is able to meet guarantees for all deposits in the country. It simply cannot afford it," daily Hospodarske Noviny quoted Kalousek as saying.http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/feedarticle/7845611
Co říkáte na výzvu předsedy ČSSD Jiřího Paroubka, který požaduje od vlády absolutní garanci na veškeré úspory?
Nemohu k tomu říct nic jiného, než že je to nekompetentní populismus.http://www.mfcr.cz/cps/rde/xchg/mfcr/xsl/ministr_42728.html
