Financial education is something that’s missing but should be obligatory. Some private initiatives start popping up though, also in Poland, so I hope it will keep getting better soon.
Things like budgeting, investing, mortgages, bank loans and the magic of compound interest should be taught in the primary school. Kids should already start saving and investing virtual money at that stage so they will be prepared better for the real life and dealing with real money.
I was interested in financial education since high school and I can see how much reading financial and investment books, playing economics games, watching movies about money, global finances, etc, have helped me. I can see how much a person who’s not that interested in this stuff is missing out and is vulnerable to other people who want their money (big banks, financial advisers, insurance agents, etc).
