<em>Financial Literacy for Teens</em>

Student Book

Never has the need for financial education been so critical for all students. The global financial crisis of 2008 will certainly repeat itself if the cycle of financial illiteracy is not broken. The Student Book is a quick, easy read that provides a vital dose of real world wisdom through powerful stories about teens and young adults who have faced financial hardships – some incredibly tragic. Financial Literacy for Teens will convince students to develop good financial habits at an early age - habits that will enable them to successfully make, manage, multiply, and protect their hard-earned money.
