Next Gen Personal Finance

Oct 31, 2016

I know that you will enjoy my recent conversation with Dr. Julie Heath, the Director of the Economics Center at the University of Cincinnati. An accomplished educator (Professor of the Year awards abound), researcher and passionate advocate, Julie has been at the vanguard of bringing financial education to elementary school students throughout the U.S. She founded SMART Tennessee in 2006 which has brought financial education to over 75,000 students in the state of Tennessee. We discuss her earliest memories of trips to the local bank ("unlocking the barrel,"), as well as the key skills that young people need to maximize their financial capabilities. Enjoy!
