What Financial future awaits the current generation of children and teenagers in the United States? Our children and teenagers did not cause the financial problems that confront the nation and impacts their families, but they will pay part of the price for these financial problems. What should children and teenagers know about personal finance? How can sound financial principles and money management be taught to these students? Extreme Economics identifies, through current research, what children and teenagers need to know about managing funds. It shows educators how to design instructional activities that enable students to learn about money management in fascinating and meaningful ways. Extreme Economics is not filled with complicated or confusing charts, graphs, and terminology. It is readable and immediately applicable. As education continues to advance, the school curriculum might consist of reading, writing, math, and economics and finance. This book is an important step to ensuring a solid base in this emerging area.

Editorial Reviews

Babbage has the right book at the right time. We are a point in history where mastery of personal finance will be the dividing line between rich and poor in the United States and play a key part in how the United States competes in a global economy. Based on research, testing and a lot of common sense, Dr. Babbage's book is an outstanding guide for students, teachers and parents. It is filled with wisdom but easy to read. I own a copy and highly recommend that you get one too.
