In the past I’ve been one to account some of New Zealand’s economic woes (high consumer spending, high consumer debt, dodgy investing practices et al) to a lack of financial literacy. I’ve posted about it a few times like here and here and here and here!
Well blow me down with a feather, in my inbox this morning was news of;
the release of the new school curriculum which incorporates a strengthened focus on developing students’ financial capability.
Securities Commission (the crowd behind the initiative) member Annabel Cotton says the Look Learn Invest website “draws a lot of material together in one place”.
“It’s covering the basics of what we think smart investors do before they commit their money.”
