Saving is for losers

For years, banks have not offered competitive savings rates in deposit accounts. This allows them to make a lot more off of your money. With the current high rate of inflation, saving money in a “savings account” costs you about 4-5% in buying power annually (If you’re even getting a “decent” interest rate.) Compounding this over time, it’s losing you a ton of future buying power. If you’re planning to save your way to retirement, plan on being very poor.
