Smart Spending for the Teens

Smart Spending
A Young Consumer’s Guide
Schmitt
1989

I am totally one of those librarians who loves talking about financial literacy. Teens, particularly, really need help managing the realities of debt, spending, credit, etc. In 1989, I probably would have bought this for a library collection.

Lots of good discussion about fraud and spending. Now a days I bet we would have a hard time understanding some of the vocabulary such as money orders, paper checkbooks, taking advantage of the float between deposits and checks (I was quite the expert in the 1980s), etc.
