Lesson 2: Why Have Financial Circumstances of Young Adults Drastically Changed Over the Years?

Opening Statements: I want you to imagine how drastically financial responsibility/circumstances has changed over the years. The cost of living, unemployment, high interest rates... etc. In this lesson, you'll explore economic trust and exchange that young adults have in banks and financial industries. As young adults are set free into the adult world, post graduation, they are thrown into a world full of responsibility and decision making that they have little knowledge of. I want you to think about the values and expectations that we want the young adults of our society to have.
