In the year 200, I open a bank account, I thought it would be easier to do transaction that way, i receive money into my account, I had cheques and so on. I thought it would be convenient. I had a credit card and could withdraw money from an ATM.
But I soon realized that the bank offered no advantages, thats when I decided to close my account since 2004. Because I noticed, that I was losing more money by the buying power value. I had the same amount of money but less spending power. So I decided to take ALL my money out of my account and exchange it into dinar & dirham.
Since then we’ve seen 20-25% inflation, but my capital value remains it value, but the Rupiah value increased. Thats how I manage to protect my money (wealth)…If I had left my money in the bank, I would have lost a large amount of money
