A Story of a Fuck Off Fund
Paulette Perhach

Even though I realize there’s more to this story than simple personal finance, I do think we fail young people in general in this society by not teaching basic personal finance, including saving. It’s probably because parents are too ashamed or stubborn to admit and discuss many of their own mistakes, and somehow it hasn’t really entered the curriculum in high school. Then, for everyone that either doesn’t go to college, or goes into something other than business or finance type majors, they don’t get any education in it after high school either. We end up with young people with a lot of confusion about what they should be doing with their money, how things like interest rates and taxes work, etc.
