Change Your Educational Strategy; Change Your Economic Results

It’s time to reinvent the way we educate our children about Math and money.

Every one of us will have to know how to handle, save and spend money for the rest of our lives.

But how do we handle it now?  Change our habits.
• Any financial advisor will tell you that each year most people retire with little or less than enough savings set aside to live on.
• Any credit counselor will tell you that most people carry more than $5,000 in debt every month and don’t make a habit of paying off their bills when they are due.
• Any banker will tell you that they make most of their money off of people’s bad spending habits (overdraft fees, excessive use of credit accounts, etc.).
• I will tell you that young people have no knowledge of basic financial habits that they will need to even start their first job.

We don’t know or care enough about the US economy and the crisis it faces today because we don’t know enough to manage our own finances.   So we keep electing other people to handle (or mis-handle) it for us.  And then we ignore it, because we can’t understand it in our own lives.

It would mean more to us, if we acted responsibly in our lives, our schools and in our households.
