Juz a caution... nothing is "safe"... case to point, $$ under pillows also no use...
banks are not charities, even charity got bad eggs.
if its really important, if i dun trust myself with my own wealth can i trust anybody else?
is the bank guarantee a 100% guarantee? or do you get paid out of up to $x amount should the bank go under.
on the other hand, massive withdrawals from banks will actually exacerbate the credit problem that banks are going through now.
Or it could be full guarantee of deposits, for a maximum of S$150 billion total, until Dec 31, 2010. Depends on how you read it. I hate the standard of journalism these days.
More news articles :
That's why, in my opinion, if you have cash in the bank, and owes the bank money for something (car, house, etc.) the safest bet would be to use the money to pay down your loan. Worst case when a bank collapses, your deposit will be gone (or reduced) but rest assured your debt would not be.
Note the qualifier "just my opinion". Not advice. It's free opinion, and worth every single cent you paid for it

I was under the impression that it was an up to $20k guarantee per person...
hmm. *rubs chin*
I'm chill. I can afford to be, because I don't belong to the group his joke offends.

To you the original post is a joke only, and that you don't find it offensive at all. But in a community it is also important that you respect the opinion of others, especially the opinion of those who administer and set the guidelines for the site.
In case you still don't get it, it is not what you call them that is offensive, it is implying that they are thieves.
Being a foreigner in another country, I thought you might be more sensitive to such issues. I guess your experience in Australia must be very positive.
To each its own! we are shaped by different upbringings and set of values. Some are lighthearted, some are just 'small gas' or too serious in everything they do or see in life
My experience? There can never be any negative experience as long as you got the MONEY!
Maybe you have never been to Australia, as a young boy growing up.... I was called Nip or Ching. In return, I called them Skip, Wog and Abo
Miraculously, we are still mates till these days!
I presume you are currently in US? Maybe the people there are a lot different from the rest of the world?
As for being 小器 - I think your reaction to the whole issue is just totally out of proportion.
