The 21st Century Student’s Guide to Financial Literacy – Going Global

Your students futures are global.

Will they thrive in a global economy? Where will they fit into this new order? How will they prepare for college and career? The answers to these questions depend very much on whether they are financially literate.

Financially literacy in the 21st century is far more than understanding how to balance a checking account or compare credit card rates. In this complex and increasingly globalized world, financial literacy requires knowledge about global commerce, business, entrepreneurship, and innovation. These topics are not just for “rich people” or those headed for a career on Wall Street. Having big picture knowledge of how money and the institutions of capitalism work go a long way toward building career skills, and the ability to recognize career and economic opportunities.

17 easy-to-teach lessons cover such important financial literacy concepts as the evolution of money, the rise of capitalism, currency and foreign exchange, venture capital, startups, intellectual property, securities and stock markets, wealth disparity, and global free trade agreements. 

Students explore the roles of such powerful institutions as the SEC, USPTO, Federal Reserve Bank, IMF, World Bank, World Trade Organization, G7, G20, and Eurozone. Students master over 250 financial literacy terms and concepts. Fun comics included!

Available in print. Also available digitally and as an online course through The College and Career Academy.
