JAKARTA - When the government announced the liquidation of 16 banks last Saturday, many people are
surprised as they did not expect their bank to be on the list, Others were still trying to come to terms with
the fact that they had lost their jobs.
"I heard on the radio that 16 bank were liquidated, that's why I came here, to check whether I
could still withdraw my money," said Prapto, who claimed to have a deposit in one of the liquidated
banks on JI. Thamrin. But the said he couldn't get it as it was Saturday and most banks do not open then.
The headquarters of some of the liquidated banks, such as Bank Pacific and Bank Industry
look calm, with only a few people coming and going. Several people called the 'Observer' last Saturday
afternoon two find out which banks had been liquidated.
I Nyoman Moena, a noted banking analyst told the 'Observer' it is a normal reaction for people to
panic when hearing such things, but, he said, the government must certainly have anticipated the
situation. "I think the monetary authority must have been prepared this tune, after the announcement of
the liquidation of Bank Sumina in 1992," Moena said referring to the guarantee by the government two
pay depositors in to weeks on November, 13, 1997 and the naming of the banks that will handle the pay
outs.
When announcing the liquidations last Saturday, Bank Indonesia assured depositors they would
get their money back. Those who had less than Rp 20 million would get all their money on November 13,
while those who had over Rp 20 million would get up to Rp 20 million in the first stage with the
remainder being paid later.
The President Director of Bank IFI Harry Rachmadi said yesterday that the liquidation of sixteen
bank would certainly have an impact in the community, as some people may lose their jobs. To minimize
the impact of the liquidations. it is important to accelerate the process. Rachmadi said that the decision
could also be a 'shock therapy' for Indonesian banks. "Bank owners can no longer do as they want when
operating their own banks," he said. He also said that some members of the public should have

In my community its various organisms are linked in a complicated web of relationships. There
are usually in balance with one another. If the natural web is disturbed, the results my be disastrous. As a
rule, the various populations of organisms tend to adjust to seasonal and other changes, and the whole
community stays in balance. Most disturbances come from man's activities.
In an undisturbed forest, white-tailed deer feed on plants of various kinds. Wolves and mountain
lions prey on the deer. When deer are numerous, their enemies become numerous too, because them is so
much to feed upon. The deer and their enemies stay in balance with one another.
Then man enters the scene. He looks on aninuls such as wolves and mountain lions as harmful.
He kills as many as possible. When the animals that feed on deer are killed, the deer multiply, without
check. Soon the large deer population has eaten nearly all the plants available for food. Then the deer
begin to starve.
Another example of man's interference with natural communities is the use of chemical
insecticides. Grass in the sprayed areas my he eaten by cows. As a result, the milk of some cows has been
found to contain too much DDT. The insecticides are also collected in the tissues of birds that eat the
sprayed insects. Some of the affected birds lay eggs that do not hatch. The number of birds therefore
decreases, cutting down the food supply of other animals.
Whether intended or not, almost every change that man has made in natural webs of life has
turned out to be a disaster for the communities involved. Man, of course, is part of the world's living
