A funny thing happened on the way to purchasing a book from Amazon.com — the price changed. Forty-two times within a 30-day period.
This past Thursday, the fourth annual business camp for high school students concluded at Anderson University. While I enjoy most of the components of the camp, my favorite is always taking the students around and visiting businesses in the community. I am always amazed — and incredibly thankful — that business owners and managers will give up substantial portions of their day to spend time sharing their stories with the students and patiently answer their questions.
If I were given unlimited power for a single day, the first thing I would change is the Core 40 requirements for Indiana high school students and add a course on financial literacy. The United States is in the midst of a financial epidemic, and so much of this problem can be traced to a lack of understanding about the basics of finance among so many individuals.
