Yesterday, I was on air with host Dan Lomey discussing our 2016 Survey of the States and how economics and personal finance can be integrated into the required curricula within U.S. History, Math, Social Studies and other subjects. I also spoke about how important it is for parents to talk openly to their kids about money.
