Banks are safe, but miserly
The guy with the wheelbarrow full of cash has a point: the banks, which fall under the Government's deposit guarantee scheme, are safe places in which to put your money. But the downside to safety is that, at present, you won't get more than about 4 per cent interest on your deposit, compared with about 8 per cent a year ago.
