"If you want to put a child to sleep, offer them a financial literacy course. The fact is that no one wants a mortgage, they want to become a homeowner -- possibly too much. No one want a car loan, they want an efficient automobile or a cool car. The fact is that financial literacy is not a math class. Money is emotional, and we need to teach a version of financial lieracy, or what we at Operation HOPE call "the language of money," that is (1) aspiratonally relevant, (2) practical, and (3) at scale. We need to connect financial literacy with one's aspirations in life."
