Introduction to Financial Investing
Should I buy or should I sell? That is a question the Biz Kid$ pondered in the scene from the Bulls, Bears, and Financial Markets episode (below in Investing Resources). The Council for Economic Education states that students should be able to understand and calculate real and after-tax rates of return on investments. They should understand how diversification reduces risk and how financial markets react to changes in market conditions. Help students navigate through the waves in the risky business of financial investing!
