Economics for Success
Economics for Success explores personal finance and students’ education and career options based on their skills, interests, and values. It also demonstrates the economic benefits of staying in school. Through a series of six interactive lessons, presented by a business volunteer, students aged 13 to 15 gain an understanding of their role in the society and the economy as consumers, employees, taxpayers, investors and borrowers. Using this knowledge, the students will then be able to apply their knowledge of personal finance to comprehend their needs and wants and make strong financial management decisions regardless of income.
