If there was a bank run in the United States, would you be ready? Would you be prepared for capital controls knocking on your door telling you that you no longer have exclusive ownership to your money? That you can only withdraw a certain amount per day?

And who will be on the hook for all the misbehavior engaged in by the euro aristocrats? The common man of course. The people will be on the hook.
Assuming we don't resolve all the world's debt problems in the coming years, chances are that similar circumstances we're seeing in Greece will replicate themselves through Europe, Britain, and yes even the United States.
