Seemingly far-fetched I know but if this idea is pursued to its logical conclusion why not.
That might actually be a deliberate component.
No interest paid to you..you take your money and either spend it or invest in corporations..economy grows, but your savings are gone or tied up making
corporations more affluent,
What's to stop banks from not storing their money with the BOE, or making loans to businesses but indulging in rash and risky investments to get the
chargable cash off their books?
Isn't dodgy investing at the root of all of this in the first place?
