In fact let's elaborate on this....1 year as you know is not a very long time. Secondly are you advocating that these super low interest rates are actually benefiting the everyday person? If so, how? How is eroding the value of the $ creating more spending power for the middle and lower classes? How is a savings account paying .02% beneficial when inflation is between 1.5%-2.0%?
