    • R: The interest rate may be high, but that inflation is crazy and it could easily go much higher within one year and potentially leave you with a loss at the end of one year. You still have to get your money out of the country at the end of the day. :-)

    Q: Hi my name is Zak and I love in Australia. I would like to open a savings account and make regular deposits. I would like to know is it possible for this to be done from Australia? And, what type of account offers the highest interest rate? I am interested because in Australia the interest rate is only 3%, I have seen that in Argentina it is about 20%.
