Each week the Eureka Report publish the best letter to the editor for the week along with a reply from the author.  In this week's Eureka Report the letter was directed at Scott's recent article - Credit crunch's silver lining.

The letter questioned whether "the high rates offered by online bank accounts offered by BankWest and Rabobank and term deposits offer returns far in excess of index funds at present and show attractive and better than share returns, at least for the next year or maybe more?"

In his reply Scott pointed out that BankWest and Rabobank were both owned by overseas banks and in his conservative style noted that this might see investors holding more"institutional risk" compared to similar investments held with an Australian owned bank.

Scott also reminded readers of the difficulty of predicting future movements in share markets and knowing whether cash style investments will indeed provide better returns compared to index funds.
