Why is it that money isn’t taught more in school? Is it that the school board superintendents don’t care? I don’t think so. Most of the teachers don’t know enough about money to teach it anyway. That’s not a stab at educators, I’m just making a point. The average person isn’t taught about what money is or how it works until the age of 25 or older.
That doesn’t mean that you don’t have lots of money it simply means that we all can stand to raise our financial IQ. Of course if you keep reading you’ll see that I’m taking you somewhere. There is a link at the end of this article that leads to a new book by Robert Kyosaki, Conspiracy of the Rich. Is their a conspiracy of the rich? Do rich people really know something different than the rest of the population on this planet? These are questions that are not easily ignored once you hear them. Money is about more than just having it and spending it! What are you doing to understand money better?
