Where to put savings before Ireland *defaults*
few of the similar replies were there
by champak:Very valid point. They say that when a frog is put in hot water he jumps out but if you put him in cold water and then raise the temperature, he doesnt jump out even if the water is getting hotter and gets cooked. This is the current situation and you will not know until it is too late. So as you say, it is very advisable to be safe than sorry. I suggest you to spread things around and keep a bit of cash around just in case the banks don't open for a few days if Ireland decides to leave euro or indeed is kicked out. Or otherwise, Germany leaves the euro and leaves the euro for the PIIGS. I have my saving spread in singapore and india and here in three different currencies of those countries. I may be wrong here as you said, but for your hard earned money, I am being safe.
by ssd:if you have money with UK banks but in Ireland, then it will not help if Ireland leaves Euro as all deposits in Ireland will be converted to Punt Nua. unless you have your savings with a UK bank in pounds.
by indianirish:Folks i frequently follow post regarding Ireland default, i do see people on the forum are optimistic about the future which we should all do, but as for now time is against kind of against us, as mentioned above in previous post Ireland is just buying time, i am following this thread and seems to be really informative, do read the comments of other people....give you an idea where could Ireland be in it defaults...which is highly likly
