New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 7, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeituna n n 3 Financial education for kids is smart investment in future Dear Abby I am a retired credit executive with more than 40 years of experience dealing with people mired in credit card payments In your column on credit card debt Free and Clear in Florida wrote it is not uncommon for people to be caught up in the vicious cycle of paying for things on credit and being able to afford only the minimum monthly We have a large segment of the population who are economically illiterate consumers and do not understand how to spend intelligently save wisely invest or do simple financial planning Yes the credit card companies and other credit granters are partially to blame for encouraging people to live beyond their means which creates financial stress for the debtor and their families However debtors who are poorly informed about money matters should shoulder some of the responsibility for

losses become part of the cost of doing business and cause consumers to pay higher prices higher interest rates and fees Theres now talk about revamping and toughening the nations bankruptcy code In my opinion such revisions are merely BandAid solutions The flaw is not only in the bankruptcy code but also in our failure to provide programs that give students a head start in understanding consumer economics along with the rights and responsibilities of using A financial education curriculum could help students develop financial skills and money sense knowledge that can help them use their money to the greatest benefit Such a program would benefit both students and credit granters If school funds are not available now to finance a money management program this would be a project worthy of
