I bet you didn't know, with the way the banksters treat you, that when you deposit to the bank, it is a LOAN to that bank.
You need more respect, after all, they are the borrowers!!!
You did not learn this in grade school, like the rest of us?
Then if you learned it at grade school, perhaps you know that the banks caused the ponzi lending escapade on purpose, at basel 2 in 1998. I doubt if you learned that at grade school.
I think everyone knows that, b. How're they supposed to make money if they don't use your money? Go ahead and bury yours in the back yard if you want.
But you get no return, and it is a crappy deal for the lender. The borrower should not have more power than the lender.
I don't get a return? Since when? What's that interest stuff, then?
There is no real return from the interest received, but only a nominal return. The real return would account for inflation. After inflation is accounted for on most savings accounts, the real rate of interest is actually negative!
Correct, and they use your deposits as reserves, which allows them to create more debt dollars out of thin air. Roughly about 10 to 1.
Most people believe that the banks loan out their deposits. If that were true, no one would be able to withdraw their money, or write checks against their accounts. Banks cannot loan out a persons money and have it on deposit at the same time.
When they do create more debt dollars, it is the form of loans, and created on the borrower's promise to pay, when they sign a loan agreement. So, in essence, the borrower is creating the money, but the banksters collect the interest. Quite a scam don'tcha know?
And Im thinking of increasing interest rates!!!
Banks are thieves in armani suits
Why gets me is that when I transfer my money from PayPal to my bank, it takes three days for me to be able to draw on it! When I used my debit card, the money is deducted immediately. That burns me up!
Yeah, I know that.
You are also paying to have them protect and insure your savings, while having the convenience of paying for things by check or card. Hopefully you are deposited in a bank that pays some interest, as well.
Rochelle, I wouldn't count on the protect and insure too much. Do you remember what happened to the savings and loans banks? When things went belly up, it was the consumers/tax payers credit that paid for what the FSLIC didn't have enough to cover.
I sure hope you don't think that the FDIC has enough to cover a financial meltdown.
They are protecting their borrowing. Of course they are going to protect that which they borrow. But that is self interest. They could care less about the depositors.
I think you are right in your implication that many people don't know this. As I have mentioned in some of the comments I have made on your hubs before, it astounds me that so many people are so complacent when it comes to their relationship with banks. However I think a large part of it has to do with what your getting at. Many people don't understand banking and how it is supposed to operate!
People are defensless against the banksters, but I think they are just starting to learn about their evil ways.!
I learned a lot watching the hearings on Elizabeth Warrens' Consumer Protection Agency.....
I KNEW they were doing this to me, but I didn't factually know, if you know what I mean !!!
: putting your deposits in at well-opportune times, so that they will bounce, and you will get the $27.00 over-draft charge.
I also saw how the Democrats were in favor of Warren, and most of the Rethugs attacked her relentlessly.
Markey: "The banks have plenty of people sticking up for them....we need someone like you to stick up for the consumer."
She is a tough cookie though..she would NOT let them bag her!
I don't think everybody knows that, although we all should.
You know I never thought about it that way but you are totally right. It's like I'm loaning you all my money and you still charging me frivolous fees? Ugh!

Millions of people do not understand that we have a debt monetary system.The actual creation of money (always) involves the extension of credit by private commercial banks.This means interest bearing loans, so all M1 money in existence is debt. There is never any money created to pay the...

I'm not an economist or political expert but when I read about the proposed bail out for Greece, ING, big banks come to mind. ING was given billions of dollars to stay afloat and now they just reported billions in losses, banks were given bail outs such as bank of America and other high...

Investment banks leverage up casino-like. When they fail, they put in jeopardy the commercial banks and you, Joe taxpayer, have to come to their rescue. Obama wants to stop that by implementing the Volcker Plan. Some say it doesn't go far enough, but at least it is an attempt to keep insured...

I've been told numerous times that "creating money out of thin air" is a good thing. And when I argued against it, the "conscience of the liberal" told me I was ignorant.Then, when I pointed out that the money went straight into companies that didn't deserve it, they said...
