How Savers Can Get 10% Yields Without Buying a Single Stock? / Personal_Finance / Investing 2012

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Alex Daley, Casey Research : The average interest rate for a savings account today is 0.45%. It wasn't that long ago that one could easily earn 5% in a well-chosen savings account, like those offered by ING Direct, or bump that up by a point or two by putting money away in a CD. Thanks to the largesse of our Federal Reserve and the antics of bankers around the country and world, those days are over, probably for a very long time. Interest rates are at an all-time low, and they look poised to stay there for a while. It's just about impossible for a saver to find the kind of yield that will beat inflation, let alone be enough to provide an income one can live on.

The Destruction of Savings by Inflation / Personal_Finance / Inflation

By: Submissions

Alasdair Macleod writes: In the past, insurance companies and pension funds have been keen to advertise the benefit of compounding arithmetic for savings. Over the last 30 or 40 years the rate has been lifted by inflation, but to understand the cost inflation brings you have to consider the whole savings cycle: not just the accumulation stage, but also annuity values in retirement. Furthermore, the historical experience of a typical working life should be compared with a theoretical sound-money alternative.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUK Inflation of 4.2% despite coming off of a 5.2% spike continues to soar at more than twice the official target rate of 2%, which stands against the more recognised RPI rate at 5% and real inflation as experienced by most of the population at 6%. UK savers continue to have the real terms value of their life time accumulated savings effectively stolen so as to bolster the bankrupt bailed out banks balance sheets.
