Should economics be a mandatory class since elementary school?
In the most (maybe all) societies economics is one of the key logic that shapes social relationships, should we share the understanding of how the world works with them?
Since our youngest age, we are full of questions of how and why things work in a certain way. The economic system is a reality in which we live; should children given tools to understand it?
I believe that the fundamentals knowledge can be understood by young children. Supply and demand, market, risk understanding are finally very simple if they are introduce properly. Children hear of economics situation in math problems, geography, history, in literature readings and so o, without any formal class. Lack of understanding creates stress and lack of confidence in society.
Is elementary school to early?
