Economic Literacy for the Old and New Generation

Part two of this special Insights series on the economy focuses on economic education for young people and the elderly. Young people have their economic futures ahead of them. Knowledge and good habits developed early on is one way of avoiding economic disaster in the future. The most financially vulnerable sector of the population - the elderly - need to be educated on how to meet their needs on their fixed incomes, how to avoid scams, and how to keep up with the technology that can aid them in areas of personal finance.

Dan Boylan will moderate a panel of economics education experts recommended by the Hawaii Council of Economic Education to address economic literacy for both young and old. Included will be features by Howard Dicus on specific areas of economic education for both generations.This conversation was recorded on July 9th, 2009 in the PBS Hawaii studio.

Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30 PM on PBS Hawaii.
