I like to keep a somewhat large savings account balance and the 1% rate of online US banks is just not cutting it for me. Are there any good options overseas? I realize getting a savings account in a country like Russia is a bad idea because while the interest rate is very high, the currency tends to lose half of its value once in a while. What about in other places? I read Norway has some good rates and the currency is extremely reliable. How does this compare in terms of practicality, rates, and reliability vs. the FDIC-secured American way?
