    Little bit about bonds: Regular bonds have a maturity date when they return your original investment and pay you interest in the meantime. Perpetual bonds don't mature and just keep paying interest forever (or until the issuer goes bust). Those people who hold the converted bonds from WW1 will still be getting interest payments more than a century after their ancestors bought them.
    Unlike bank accounts, bonds don't pay compound interest because the interest isn't reinvested. They just pay you. If you buy $10000 worth of bonds at 4% interest, they'll pay you $400 every year until they mature (if ever).
    Inflation, however, will have an impact on the value of your returns. A 3% inflation rate gives money a half-life of around 23 years. If your bonds mature in 25 years, those last couple of years will feel half as powerful as the first ones did. Oh, and if you think 25 years seems a bit extreme, it's not. The ASX lists a couple of dozen Australian government bonds, and as of March 2019, there are two with maturity dates more than 20 years away, with the longest maturing in 2047.

    Yes, true. But that's on the mindset of him only investing the two pence and never another dollar (pound, whatever) for the rest of his life.. They were trying to teach him about creating an account and saving money.

    Yes, but Michele would probably be dead anyway as he had to live through both WW1 and WW2. He would have also been putting money into the bank and taking it out all his life. Unless the tupence was the only income that he ever earned for the entire length of his life. And let's face it it probably was, he just cost his father his job.

    Now I'm confused. Not by the math, but because I just got back from the new movie: video says that mr. banks used the tuppence to buy the kite, but in the sequel, the banker says Michael invested the tuppence -- and that kite is like an important part of the new movie too so like??? I am confused. Either Matt misspoke or Disney retroactively changed the ending of the first movie

    So in this video, you just asked one simple question, and then went on to give us a lecture on banks, inflation, investments, bonds, and general economy. And *then* give us the extremely simple answer to the initial question given- which had almost nothing to do with just about 3/4ths of the video. Nice.

    Hitler was right, I hate the Jews! We gave the world to Communist-Cult leaders, and agents of hatred against the White Race!
    If the Western powers stayed out of the war, the Axis would have ended the threat of Communism by destroying the USSR, The Middle East would not have been dominated by the death-cult of Islam, and Africa would not be a complete fucking shithole with an exponentially-increasing population that lives by sucking the life force out of the western world via foreign aid.
    If Hitler won, the west would have eventually kicked out the communist jews behind the women's and civil rights movements that transformed balitmore, detroit, and chicago into complete shitholes full of constant violence and corruption, and we would have never had the jewish warhawk agitations and deceptions that led us into so many wars, we wouldn't have heard the word "holocaust", but we'd know all about the holodamor, and, most importantly, we wouldn't be opening our countries to millions of people who had destroyed their own countries, and want to do the same to ours. rapists, murderers, torturers, assaulters, bullies, arsonists, vandals, thieves, fraudsters, invaders, occupiers, and so on, literally inbred retards (IQ below 70 is literally the medical definition of intelectual retardation, and it's the average of sub-saharan africa, while the middle east has the highest rates of inbreeding in the world, and the tradition continues when they arrive at their "new homes") who are ugly as fuck (look at them and tell me that you don't think they must have some birth defect), never get work (if they do it's in telling lies in the field of journalism and politics, in accordance with the koran-proscribed practice of deception in the interests of islamic conquest, or halal food, restaurants that serve shitty middle eastern and african food that smells like shit and looks like turds, and refuse to serve non-muslim customers), commit all manner of the worst possible kinds of crimes (at worst, I'm talking organized crimes of sexual violence committed against young children, which are then covered up and aided by the government), collect benefits and pop out more filth like themselves (they are a net loss, and every second they've had so many of their little fucking hellspawns that the loss keeps growing at an exponential rate), all while bragging about how superior they are and how they are going to kill the people who took them in and steal their land, and the worst thing is, they are probably right unless we get mean and fucking do something to stop them.
    Oh, and another thing, the french have already begun doing something, targetting the banks and synagogues, wearing yellow vests all the while, and pre-emptively striking out against the police, they no longer care about public opinion, the majority of indigenous french agree with them, fucking tear shit up!

    Despite the stress he endured, I found Mr. Banks' enthusiasm in his job very refreshing. David Tomlinson pulled off a character that truly took pride in his work, despite it being in a position that most kids watching would have seen as a boring job. As an adult, it makes so much more sense that someone like Mr. Banks whose literal name was wrapped up in his job would have a bit of identity crisis upon being discharged. However, the fact that he has loved ones that care for him regardless (and has just grown a sense of humor, thanks to Mary Poppins and the children) helped keep the aftermath of his firing from going into much darker territory.
    Great job as usual, MatPat!
