In this interview Isabelle de Laminne, author of a blog on consumer financial issues, shares her views on financial literacy. She notes that without a willingness on the side of people to be educated in financial matters, very little can be achieved. On the other hand, if people make the choice to follow such courses and are engaged, the results are worth the effort. Giving this education to adults is often difficult because it may be at a time that is too late to change people’s mentality. The opportunity lays with adolescents who can be more easily influenced and made conscious of financial issues for the rest of their lives. The interviewee proposes that basic courses in economics become obligatory in high schools as are courses in biology and anatomy. These subjects are taught to complement the work of physicians and raise the awareness and capacities of individuals to take care of their health. The same should be the case with financial literacy; it is to make us a little more conscious about the problems we may face and more capable to protect ourselves.
