  1. I really just dont know what to say to this. To me this is the equivilent of someone not know what 9/11 is, who is the current president, or any other simple thing that every american should know. I mean how can people live such an advanced country and not know anything about how money works?

  2. Tell them trader tax will create jobs.

    Tell them cap and trade will protect us.

    Tell them Obama will save us.

    Doesn't bode well for the future when you can't tell who your enemies are :(
  3. It's been obvious to me that Americans in general are financially illiterate. The public school system certainly doesn't teach the kids about economics, banking and finance. I've learned what I know through college coursework and mostly books and articles I've read on my own.
  4. P.T. Barnum was correct. :cool:
