In the summer of 2008 I wrote an article about the Romanian state owned bank Savings Bank (CEC). The title translated into English meant – Bank that exploits the taxpayer’s money. I got into a lot of trouble then with phone calls and threats of a legal suits against me. In the end my local CEO, did not stand by me, and I had to stop writing my column.
By comparison here is an article in the economist about ECB : Especially Crummy Bank.
Need I say more?
