In a GoLocalWorcester.com article, Victor Matheson, associate professor of economics at the College of the Holy Cross, commented on a study showing credit unions offer the best interest rates on savings accounts and CDs in Massachussetts.
“Credit Unions are organized as non-profit entities and are not subject to corporate income taxes,” contributed Matheson. “Without having to pay a return to investors and a cut to Uncle Sam, they can pass on their savings in the from of higher rates for savers and lower rates for borrowers.”
