Nervous investors have begun parking their money in Treasury bonds that offer zero interest, even negative interest, the New York Times is reporting.

What are they doing? They’d get more interest if they kept their money under a mattress.


Picture this: An investor brings a date home to show off his apartment, and he shows her his bedroom.

She: What that’s lump under your mattress?

He: That’s my money.

She: Really?

See. Interest.
