    Greek savers could lose at least 30 percent of their bank deposits which could be seized to help shore up the country's banking system as fears grow of financial collapse, the FT reported Saturday. Depositors with over 8,000 euros ($8,900) in the bank may be made to take a "haircut" similar to those taken by Cypriot account holders in 2013, when uninsured funds were seized to stabilise the financial sector, the FT said, quoting bankers and businessmen close to negotiations. Greek banks have been shut since Monday, and the system faces collapse if the ECB declares the banks insolvent should Greece refuse to pay back its debts.

Ignoring its own procedures, the International Monetary Fund threw caution to the wind Thursday and shook up things both in Brussels and Athens, two days before the referendum in Greece on accepting new bailout terms.

  • Helsinki’s winning Guggenheim choice fails to quell revolt

    It is only a model for now, but the new Guggenheim Museum for Helsinki has already kicked off a scrap over the 130-million-euro project’s costs, location, and much more. The Finnish capital’s winning design is by two architects, Moreau and Kusunoki, a Franco-Japanese pair based in Paris. “It’s also about how to connect the city and the museum itself, that’s why we call it ‘Art in the City’.” The Solomon R.
