Here’s something you don’t hear from the Fed very often these days: common sense. Yesterday in Washington, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told a group of teachers that America’s kids need to be getting a lot more financial education than they are. He said it would not only help them individually, it would also strengthen America’s economic health if young people learned about things like budgeting and saving, how to plan for retirement, how the financial system works and how to make informed economic decisions. I second that, but I’d also add that if every American really understood how the economy worked, the results of our elections might be a lot different, too. And Ben Bernnanke might find himself with a lot less power at the Fed.
