Saving Standards and Resources
Saving money: Easy to say but hard to do! At different points in their lives, people make different choices about saving. Consider concepts such as compound interest, the difference between real and nominal interest rates, present versus future value, and benefit programs. According to the Council for Economic Education, students should learn about the role of government agencies in protecting savings deposits. For example, recall the bank run in It's a Wonderful Life. Now consider how the FDIC helps prevent bank runs.
