How is this possible?
From the myfinances.co.uk site:
Meanwhile, the Guardian is reporting:
"University students could earn, rather than have to pay, interest on their student loans from September now Britain has gone into deflation. Interest rates on student loans are linked to the Retail Prices Index (RPI), which went below zero this month for the first time in five decades, economists said today. This means students would have loans which have an interest rate that is effectively paying back the money they owe. But this will only be the case if ministers do not change the way that interest rates on student loans are calculated."
Imagine that, a student loan that pays for itself, that product has potential!
