So let's figure out a way to turn the country into a nation of Fools!

Remove "Shop" and "Home Ec" from the school curiculum and insert "Personal Finances". Make it a mandatory course that talks about everything from what everything means on a paycheck to what an IRA/RRSP is and the power of compounding interest. Make it a madatory class. Have people that have gone bankrupt come in and explain the issues they faced.

It might not save a lot of people but at least the next generation will be more knowledgable.
