    In 1968, you could go to your local state bank and get "real interest", at least 5%. What happened? The incentive to save was there, right in front of your eyes. Those days are gone. You get a fraction of 1%, while they're turning "your dollars", into 18 – 24 %. Kinda wants you to bury it in the back yard, doesn't it? And the dirty tricks? Like an "inactivity fee". You plan to let money sit? They will dig that money out, without asking you. Even after they tell you they will. But if you planned a theft against a merchant, and commited it? You'll go straightr to jail, and pay for it, the rest of your life.

    The B.I.S. is the most evil bank. (The Bank for International Settlements) If you have never heard of them, then you could not possibly understand how the world's economies function. That goes for our economy as well. Research this bank for yourself and see why it is that both Democrat and Republican leaders have always staunchly and stubbornly refused to allow public audits of the Federal Reserve/Central Banks located here in the USA, just like foreign governments won't allow public audits of their respective central banks. google it, I dare you. (grin)
