So… What is You and Your Cash all about?
You and Your Cash exists to find, and or uncover, solutions which can assist you, to keep more of your “hard-earned-Cash”, under your control! In this context, “Cash” refers to bank balances, “bank” notes, and property [property, comes in many guises, and more often than not carries a “cash-value”]. We aim to present solutions in a way which is both entertaining and easy to understand. We achieve this by gathering, analysing and testing mainstream, and or “alternative” solutions. Where solutions do not exist, We seek to create them. “Cash”, or more specifically, that which is “treated-as-Cash”; can be thought of as a “promise”, or “other-order”: directing the flow of “money”. So what is money? Well, that’s where our investigations get interesting: check Your Bank Notes! A ‘promise to pay’ “money”, cannot, by pure definition, be money! Sound weird? Welcome to the world of Corporations, Banking and Double Entry Accounting. As the saying goes “fact is often stranger than fiction”. As proof of that, watch this video featuring two financial professionals on the RT website. How banks create money starts at about the16 minutes mark.
Our thanks to Karl from Norwich who told us about this video and said that it “backs up what you say”.

This one comes from Colin in Yorkshire, and his question “I’ve seen a lot of debate online about Bank loans. Do Banks actually loan anything when they make a loan?”
In order to understand the question and the answer, you are advised to engage in some homework and learn about the creation of money: Modern Money Mechanics, the Chicago Plan (IMF Website), and the Bank of England Quarterly Bulletin 2014 Quarter 1, Volume 54, No. 1; are good places to start.
While this may seem like a very simple question, it is still a very important one.
It seems weird saying this, but never trust bank staff to be able to explain banking products, services and or processes correctly, because in this modern age, bank staff are often the least informed people when it comes down to banking code and banking practice. And that’s coming from an ex-banker! In the program we go over the important differences. Not knowing which is best will cost you your cash. And we don’t want that do we!… Feeding BritCaster.com
I want a loan. Where can I go to get the best deal? From Adrian, in Colchester, Essex.
DON’T DO IT! Consider whether you really need a loan, and or whether you really need that large purchase. If you can get by without it, great. If you can’t live without the item, save for it, because products, fashions and technologies change over time. Unless it’s an emergency, or for something which is essential, the chances are you will regret doing it, you’ll regret spending the cash, and you’ll regret paying the interest.
If you absolutely must get a loan, then perhaps consider the following, and this is something that parents, grand parents and extended families should consider doing for their children, grandchildren and or loved ones: Download the free help sheet for the latest help!
