Financial literacy isn’t a skill — it’s a lifestyle. Take it from Curtis “Wall Street” Carroll. As an incarcerated individual, Caroll knows the power of a dollar.
While in prison, he taught himself how to read and trade stocks, and now he shares a simple, powerful message: we all need to be more savvy with our money.
He is right. Financial literacy is missing at all levels of society, and is easily the biggest cause of our problems, both economic and social. It’s amazing how it’s one of those issues that people will actively fight against learning. Somehow people have mangled “money can’t buy happiness” into “money shouldn’t be important to you” – those people are most definitely wrong.
