As the debt of the U.S. government approaches $9 trillion, we must ask ourselves what sort of economic example is being set for our students. If this debt will be passed on to our current generation of students, what, then, should children and teenagers know about personal finance? How can sound financial principles and money management be taught to these students? Extreme Economics: The Need for Personal Finance in the School Curriculum identifies, through current research, what children and teenagers need to know about managing funds. It shows educators how to design instructional activities that enable students to learn about money management in fascinating and meaningful ways. Extreme Economics is not filled with complicated or confusing charts, graphs, and terminology. It is readable and immediately applicable. As education continues to advance, the school curriculum might consist of reading, writing, math, and economics and finance. This book is an important step to ensuring a solid base in this emerging area.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Babbage's book is aimed at teachers and educators, but any parent or student would also benefit from reading it. The spend-for-today mentality has to stop. Schools and society have to address the problem, and Dr. Babbage has concrete ideas, exercises and plans. * DonMcNay.com *
Extreme Economics provides not only a wake-up call but a how-to guide for the teachers and school systems that thus far haven't seen fit to prod students into fiscally responsible earning and saving habits. Babbage writes in a style that engages his readers in much the same way that he encourages educators to more directly engage students. While the advice contained in Extreme Economics seems to be directed primarily to teaching professionals, its value doesn't end there. In addition, the book provides ideas and examples of how parents can and should take part in educating family members about the importance of fiscal responsibility, and how to achieve one's financial goals. * Business Lexington *
Extreme times call for extreme measures. In this eye-opening guide to financial responsibility, Keen Babbage arms young people with the extreme tools for fiscal security. Extreme Economics can help them survive, and even thrive, in an era when bankruptcies are epidemic and living on the edge is commonplace. -- Sylvia L. Lovely, executive director and CEO, Kentucky League of Cities
