That would be pretty cool idea, but there's a downside to it.



Everyone would make level 3 accounts, and take money from them, to their main. :wink: I've seen a post like this somewhere.

Bank intereest is meant to counteract inflation. Once they accuratley work out the inflation rate in RS, then they can give interest on cash in the bank. And it would have to be based on how much you have, or it would not counteract the inflation at all. What people dont realise is that for someone with 1B, the amount they get in interest per day, is the value they would lose due to inflation in that day. SO it's not as if they are earning money by it, just maintaining thier item value.




yes interest just keeps you up to date with inflation

In my opinion, they just put that there to make it look more like a bank. Sorry to poop your party :P.

bump!

Would a mod please somehow make this tie in with the current rants about merching clans?

What I want to say is that I really don't understand how everything seems to have shot up *since* the start of the Northern Hemisphere school year....

In the last Q&A Jagex acknowlege that inflation is out of control.

From my perspective, (and I am a self-reliant noob), I want double the cost of "that better item" in my bank gp before I buy it...... But inflation has ripped far beyond that point for the last several months!

Was there an event in game that triggered a global price rise?

Is it merch clans (the price of chaos tallies I just deal with.... :S)

Would a very nominal interest rate against the gp a player is saving in their bank account curb some of the greed displayed by the junior members of merch clans?

[The edit!::

[I have felt severely impacted by inflation for several months. My "base rate" is the cost of nature runes as I high alch much of what I make. I saw the cost of nature runes rising in parallel with items like whips, steel platebodies, saradomin swords, dragon chainbodies, random items picked from the scroll bar at the top of the community/ge screen. As an adult who is impacted by federal reserve interest rates and inflation figures every day, I have been more and more convinced that a careful "Reserve Bank" decision by Jagex could do much to stabilise the economy, while still allowing astute investors to speculate.]

1) Jagex said they'd never add it as they want players to WORK for their money

2) Jagex is looking to get gp OUT of the economy not IN

3) That examine has been there since like day 1 of rs

4) Its a JOKE the interests are "low low low" because they are 0%

I have bumped a topic that pre-dates my involvement in the game by 2 years.... a topic that would have pre-dated the removal of the wildy and the introduction on the g.e.

I was not interested in the examine texts of posters on walls of banks... which, in idle moments I have read and laughed at......

My concern relates to the current inflation in game..... the current rants about merch clans..... and Jagex' current commitment to do something about it.

Would a nominal (very nominal, as we experience in real life) interest rate, linked to the g.e. index curb some of the rampant inflation that has occurred over the last 6 months or so?

Pawclaw, I work for every gp in my account, usually in the most skill-intensive/gp--stripping way possible. lol I then go on to level in the gp-stripping skills.... I do appreciate that drops enter and something must take that out.

Edit: And JoeDaStud, I have bumped the topic because I think a nominal interest rate may be a current fix, and I searched for a topic that might have been discussed before. Please, forget the posters in banks.... I am concerned about the current inflation and how that could be addressed in a way that benefits astute investors and skillers alike.]

Well then post your own topic or reply to one of the many hundreds already posted about it.

Don't bump a 4 yr old topic that is compeltely irrelvent to what you want to talk about.

ok pls lock. Sorry, I thought the idea was to search for when the idea of "bank interest" had been discussed before and not post a new one.

Try not to bump really old threads in the future. Bumping with new relevant information is allowed, but you would be better off creating your own thread if you wish to discuss this idea :)
