Remember when bank deposits collected interest rates that exceeded the rate of honestly-measured inflation? Neither do I.

Sharing is Caring!

A long time ago in the 1980s, banks gave high interest rates for savings due to high government interest rates. I believe I got 8% while federal rates were 13%. Today. Banks give 1% or less while federal rates are over 5.25%.
