The Big Question
THE BIG QUESTION IS NOT does financial literacy education work. It does. I know from personal experience; having interviewed hundreds of people; and having delivered financial education programs to thousands of children.
THE BIG QUESTION IS whether or not we have the will to prioritize it, implement it and access it on every level continuously:
- in homes
- in classrooms
- in community & government organizations
- on phones, websites, TV
- at events…
That is how education works. That is how skill is achieved. That is how habits are formed and reversed.
Here is What Research Reveals
RESEARCH reveals what common sense indicates - financial literacy is a global problem.
Talking to and teaching kids about money when they are young; when it matters most; is not easy for anyone.
Research also reveals Sammy’s solution - to emphasize habit formation and incorporate features that address feelings as well as thinking - is on point!
- AFCPE: … Much of one’s beliefs, habits, and behaviors are shaped by family and other important role models…
- World Economic Form: …Children develop their saving and spending habits by the age of 5…
- Money Advisory Service: …Adult money habits are set by the age of 7…
