On March 11, I read an article in the newspaper about the President's Advisory Council recommending that financial education be taught to students starting as as early as prekindergarten.
I certainly agree that this type of education is needed. What I find absurd is that a council coming from the president's office should be able to comment on what our youth needs when they cannot manage their own finances.
Have we, as a country, not spent more than $17 trillion more then the money we have earned?
What business could ever survive with this type of economic behavior? But then again, only the government has its own printing press.
