Interactive Spreadsheet: The Death of Savings
NOTE: The model only dates back to 2001. Any dates prior to that will result in an error.
In our next installment of interactive spreadsheets, I wanted to focus on the destructive power quantitative easing has had on savings. This spreadsheet serves two purposes:
1) To demonstrate the difference in interest income on savings between two dates.
2) To demonstrate how much money would be needed to retire given a certain interest rate environment.
The results are very stunning.
