Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This particular liquidity run is about balance of trade, as is common in soft currency countries.

However, if bancor was operating under some international governance, it could well have been subject to the same international political pressures that led to the existing Iranian sanctions ... so it seems like it would be no guarantee against an international sanctions-driven liquidity run.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
