Project Description

It is clear from the recent world economic crisis that not many people (including governments, economists and the general public) have much understanding of economic processes. Young children in particular, are rarely taught about economic matters and have little insight into the nature of money, banking, finance or economic exchange. We want to investigate how young children first become aware of such concepts, and whether it is possible to introduce children to economic ideas at an early age. This research could be carried out in any country.
