    With the tidal wave of seniors who MUST try to live on a fixed income that won't crest until 2023 and a Fed that has semi-permanently welded yields to the basement floor the desperation for yield will only get stronger.

    At least they use your own money to pay you back. Trouble would start if they were to use the next guy's money for that.
