    not sure when banks offered much if any interest on savings. i seem to recall a savings account i had in the 1990s. it was %2 then. thinking its all a misunderstanding of the banking business. it used to be the way banks made money was by loaning out money they had on deposit. the difference between the interest they charged borrowers and what they paid depositors was their profit. well they don’t do it that way any more. they make more money on fees and investments, than what they do on loans.
