I don’t know about what school was like for you, but when I went through school financial education was pretty much non-existent.
I seem to recall one small class on financial education that covered balancing a cheque book and other basics like that. Other than that though, learning how money works wasn’t a subject we were taught in school.
My Own Financial Education
For over a decade now I’ve been on my own mission of financial education that has included reading books, attending seminars, hiring coaches and working with mentors. It’s through this quest for knowledge that I’ve been able to get a much better understanding of what money actually is, and how our financial systems operate today.
Thanks to the internet there is a never ending supply of information available at your fingertips. The challenge is knowing what’s good and accurate and what isn’t. I have a select number of sources that I follow because of the quality of the information they provide, and there’s no shortage of information about how our banking and financial systems work if you look for it.
The Financial Education You Need Won’t Come From Schools
While a large segment of the population is waking up to the scam that has been perpetrated against us, the vast majority of “sheeple” are still in the dark and have no idea how our money system actually works.
Your Financial Education Begins When You Understand That Every Dollar In Existence Is Created As Debt
Once you understand this simple truth, you realize that interest is an instrument of financial enslavement. The money in circulation has been created out of thin air and circulates in the economy, but the money to pay the interest has never been created so we’re simply playing a game of financial musical chairs and when the music stops someone loses their car or home, and the bank gains the asset.
Why Don’t Schools Teach Financial Education?
I’ve often wondered why financial education isn’t taught in school just like math, English and science. In truth, I think it needs to be a core subject. It’s certainly a skill that we’ll all utilize throughout our lives, and without it we tend to suffer.
Perhaps that’s the reason. If you subscribe to some of the theories out there, the modern education system was designed and funded by the elite over a century ago. At that time the globe was full into the industrial revolution, and there was a high demand for factory workers.
Why not create an “education system” that churns out obedient, well trained workers to man the factories. They’d be used to reporting in at a certain time, asking to use the washrooms, eating and taking breaks when the establishment permits.
Whether you buy into that theory completely or not, I believe there’s certainly some truth there. When you follow the money through the system across the globe, it tends to all point back to the same handful of organizations owned by the same handful of wealthy families.
