  • well, before FDIC the banks werent insured and so when the depression hit, A LOT of people lost their money...people started keeping all their money at home, in mattresses, etc.

    now, as anon17 said, banks are not as secure as what we thought even with FDIC since there have been bank issues with the recent economy issues. so that is why.

    also, some people dont manage money well so when they overdraft they get hit with HUGE fees that just inflame their poor money management skills.

  • Proably cause you are lending your money to them for free, plus the money is not so secure anymore FDIC is kinda useless.

    banks are making big nucks off your money sitting there, $10 on the dollar! and you get nothing or someting that doesnt touch inflation!
