Resources to Learn about Money 

Every day I am approached by people who ‘wished they understood’ all kinds of money subjects. These folks feel lost, ignorant, angry at themselves, and foolish all because of their own perceived lack of knowledge about money. Negative slef-talk just leaves you stuck and does not advance your knowledge. So, take a pledge with me! I promise to learn more about money this summer!Here are some resources to help you honor your promise: (for the screen)Kids resources- The Brewer Marden’s has a large supply of oversized coloring books entitled, “Children’s Economics.’ When I saw them the week of June 21st, they were $1.99 and they cover jobs, interest, borrowing, budgets, not in any detail. But it’s a great start, and very accessible. I bought these coloring books for way more money and had them in my office for various things and I love them. Internet resources- FDIC, Federal reserve and regional banks – like the Federal reserve bank of Philadelphia, these sites and others have history of coins and lessons about trade and consumer info about money so that you can follow your interests. It’s fun and free.Library- Besides my clever book, Real Deal: making Big Changes with Small Change, ask your librarian for magazines and about finance and money and have them help you with an interlibrary search for subjects that interest you. Don’t read the tomes that are not of interest or give you a headache, but take small steps towards a better understanding of all things money.Remember, you took a pledge! FDIC Fed Marion R.
