‘‘We are what you call collateral damage,’’ said Chrysanthos Chrysanthou, a goat and chicken farmer who blamed a German-led push to end Cyprus’s status as a banking haven for leaving his animals on ‘‘starvation rations.’’ He, too, went to the bank Thursday and withdrew the limit of 300 euros, far less than he needs to keep his animals fed.


I wonder if many Cypriots have gone into business scalping money - selling eu200 in cash or non-Cyprus bank deposits for eu300 in Cyprus bank deposits.

For a lot of folks, a hundred euros profit for a few minutes work - even limited to once per day - would be a good deal.
