Now this is interesting. A Spanish football (soccer to us) team gets a loan from a bank to pay the transfer fees for two star players. Then, a after the bank merges with another, the loan is put up as collateral with the ECB for needed funds and, if the loan goes bad, the ECB could 'own' the players?!!! Exactly what that means isn't made clear. Would they be forced to stay with that team, with or without contract, until the loan is paid off?? I believe that would qualify as slavery. Worse Moody's rated the loan collateral as AAA.
