Monday, March 18, 4:00 AM ETCyprus' government is reportedly proposing to skew the raid on bank deposits towards larger accounts, with one idea being to tax savings of under €100,000 at 3% instead of 6.7%, as initially planned. Deposits of over €100,000 would be levied at 12.5% instead of 9.9%. In return, savers would receive shares in commercial banks - whose possible collapse precipitated the need for the bailout - with equity returns guaranteed by expected income from natural gas discoveries.
