Is this ageism?

Earn 6% on children’s savings

Could we sue Halifax and the other institutions for ageism? (Irony) Before anyone asks the connection with HPC, there are plenty of articles about IR's posted on this site!

  • When this site discusses age issues, it usually targets the older generation who have ridden the crest of a debt based monetary system (or unwittingly joined a ponzi scheme early depending upon your point of view.) I think I’d prefer to call this ‘marketing’ rather than ‘ageism’. Also remember that we have pledged our children’s future to pay todays debts; there’ll be plenty of time to screw them over later in life.

  • This is a regular saver so effectively 3%. I don’t think there are any accounts that beat the real inflation of neccessities. The way the banks are screwing us all at the moment, I would imagine a years worth of University fees sitting in a kids account today might just cover a few text books in 18 years time; the CTF accounts are even worse.

  • (Irony)

    That’s sarcasm or at best a simple joke.

    No, irony would be if one of the kiddywinks sued them for attempting to instill an unhealthy and detrimental preoccupation with wealth accumulation in the underaged.

    Hmmm.

  • Is this ‘for the children’, or is it a convenient loophole for the privileged hoarders because a roll out would be unattractive/ineffective.

    No, that would have happened years ago. 🙂

    The financial-social relationship between young and old is developing into a very sick coupling, promoted by external influences who really

    have little social conscience. That’s what happens when plutocracy gains ground.
