Best Cash ISA for Crash / Collapse in UK Savings Interest Rates / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Bank of England slashing UK interest rate from 0.5% to 0.25% in a panic to save its always teetering on the edge of bankruptcy bankster brethren from going bust again and to monetize government debt by means of quantitative easing, the smoke and mirrors phrase used for the Bank of England to print another £170 billion mostly for its banking sector friends to gorge themselves on, to generate additional artificial profits. The net effect of this 'THEFT' of purchasing power is that the price savers and workers have already been paying for 8 years has just gotten a lot worse!

By: MoneyFacts

As holidaymakers prepare for their trip abroad, they may begin to realise that their travel cash will not be going as far as before. Thanks to fluctuating exchange rates, buying £200 worth of Euros today means €49 less spending money than a year ago, and a similar picture can be seen when buying £200 worth of dollars, with almost $48 less back compared with 2015.
