IMF proposes a 10% tax on all bank deposits to pay for sovereign crises

First there was Cyprus, where upwards of 60% of all bank deposits were confiscated to bail out private bank insolvency.  Then came new initiatives by several countries, including Canada, New Zealand the the ECB, to take depositor funds and use them to bail out financial institutions during the next economic or monetary crisis.
And on Oct, 14, we have the IMF proposing a new 10% tax on all European depositors to help bail out the increasing sovereign debts that have only expanded in the Euro Zone since the credit crisis of 2008.
