Where is the instrument that pays a paltry 5% at low risk in a strong currency in a low inflation economy?
Nowhere, when a bank creates money out of thin air, loans out 20-30 times what it has, and if it fails they get bailed out - and even if they don't, bank management does not feel any personal consequences. Why would they take money from you at 5% and look for people to take loans at 6.5% when they can just write in their computer that there is money, loan it at 1% to government or 2.5% - 5% to people, and pocket their bonuses?
