Our staggering national debt is due in large part to highly educated politicans and goernment offcials making fincial decisions with littel or no training on the subject of money. Today, I often elook ahead to the new millennium and wonder what will happen when we have millions of people who will need financial and medical assistance. They will be dependent on their families or the government for financial support. What will happen when Medicare and Social Security run out of money? How will a nation survie if teaching children about money continues to be left to parents most of whom will be, or already are, poor?
