Marketplace Scratch Pad

The kids are alright

Scott Jagow Sep 14, 2009

There’s a lot of talk about how the economic decisions of today will affect future generations. But we rarely talk to the future. So, I gathered a few kids together and held a Small Town Hall to hear their thoughts about money, the economy and their future. If you think children aren’t tuned into this stuff, think again.

Click here to watch video highlights of the Small Town Hall. There are some great little moments, pardon the pun. Highly recommended viewing!

After you watch the clips, I’d love to get your impressions and any thoughts you’d like to share on the subject.
