A recent article about I-Bonds (I don't remember where I saw it; perhaps on www.bankrate.com ) mentioned some university's study about the relative performance of Series EE and Series I US Savings Bonds over the long term. Their economic models showed that under most of the likely inflation scenarios:- I-bonds beat E-bonds when the I-bond fixed rate is at 3%- E-bonds beat I-bonds when the I-bond fixed rate is at 2%.In the short-term it is impossible to predict which will do better. In other words, if you're in savings bonds for the long-term, E-bonds make more sense now than I-bonds do.I didn't see the original study, and even if I had I don't think I would have been able to judge the soundness of the economics.
