How many different intrest rates are there?

The banks are not too excited about people savings. The rates are pretty low. Very low! On the other hand,people who need cash can not borrow it within the ranges that banks offer to people who wishes to have a saving account. It doesn't add up?

Can some communities start an account and have people use it to deposit their cash and then people who need the cash pay the interest rate that is much lower than what banks are charging to the borrowers and much higher than what banks are paying for interest rate to people who are saving it?

Who Disrupt Pak-China Relations?

By Sajjad Shaukat

Fed up with doing nothing but complaining for four years

I am just a citizen that is ready to act on this desperate situation. To follow the example of every generation before us. That when they were faced with desperate times they banded together to do something about it. The American Revolution, The great depression and WWII, The Civil Rights movement. What about this generation. We had 911 but how long REALLY did we Chang for that. Please help me with advice your time or anything else. I'm not affiliated with any corporation or special interest other then reviving our economy. It is going to take a MOVEMENT. I'm waiting for someone to start one.
