Description

Why do we use money to buy things? How would the world run if there was no money? What do banks do anyway? What about credit cards? Starting with the early use of barter, our journey of money will take our hero Farmer Fiona through the use of gold, paper money, and towards a future where she may not carry any currency at all. Along the way we will learn about the role of banks, interest rates, credit cards, blockchain technologies, and the importance of saving, managing, and making good choices in our own future financial lives. Students will play finance based games, and participate in various hands-on exercises to experiment with their new found skills in the world of money. Sumeit Aggearwal, MBA, MSIS is the managing partner and co-founder of Finhive LLC specializing in personal finance education.
