       Everything you want to know about money, all between the covers of this 256-page book. Presented in a visual and textual format, learn about taxes, banking, investment houses, stock markets, hedge funds, inflation, pensions, coinage, and financial culture. You will read about key figures in economics, history and learn interesting facts about how countries cope with debt, interest rates, credit ratings, and money vs happiness. I avoided writing this description because I didn’t think this would be that engaging, but found that I didn’t want to stop reading after I started. Although I’m sure some of the statistics were outdated shortly after printing (2013), the presentation is fascinating. This book would just be a good resource for anyone who wants to understand a monetary system better. Did you know that the concept of credit has been around since Louis XV, a dollar will buy 8 cups of milk in Kenya, and money from Keno slips help build the Great Wall in China. The publisher touts this as a jargon free publication, but you will be introduced to a lot of new vocabulary. “Jargon Free” means that they give you the meaning of those words right on the same page they are used. You will also find a glossary at the back.  

      This book could be used as a supplement to your economics course, or just as a shelf reference. The explanations might help parents understand financing and the mechanics of the system a little better too. ~ Donna

    These days money comes in all forms, from coins and checks to something passed around the electronic world of debit cards and online banking. But we often wonder if money is either inherently good or evil. When money is treated properly in light of what God says, money is a good thing. Did you know that Jesus Christ talked more about money than any other subject? Thankfully, Randy Alcorn unpacks what God has to say on the subject with many biblical references. He explains that all money belongs to God, but that He has given it to us to manage. Alcorn skillfully reveals God's view of money, our mandate to be stewards, how we should manage what has been entrusted to us, and lastly, how those principles can be passed on to the next generation. Written in an informative and flowing manner, the book will impart information you will not soon forget. 255 pgs, pb. John

    If you give to a ministry, are you responsible for how it uses your money? Author Mary Kinney Branson believes that it is in the best interest of the giver, and the Kingdom, for a person to make sure that his donation is used wisely. Most of her story relates to her tenure at the North American Mission Board, an organization supported by the Southern Baptistââ‚™s Cooperative Program. She relates episodes of wasteful spending and extravagant living among some of the brass of the organization. Although the story is confined to this one organization, the principles that she outlines can be applied to evaluating the operations of any organization to whom you might donate money. 193 pg, pb. - Bob

    Seriously academic, this comprehensive book from Ludwig von Mises provides an in-depth study of Austrian School of Economics on the everyday money and credit banking system. Part 1 begins with a look at the Nature of Money, where he explores the function of money, the measure of value, kinds of money and the enemies of money. In part 2, the Value of Money, he examines the concept of the value of money, the determinants of the purchasing power of money, problems with objective exchange-value of money, the social consequences of variations in the objective exchange value of money, and monetary policy. Part 3 goes deeper into money and banking including the business of banking, the evolution of fiduciary media and the demand for money, credit and interest including a look at problems of credit policy. The final section explores Monetary Reconstruction including principles of sound money, contemporary currency systems, and the return to sound money. While there are no chapter questions for review, parents and high school students with an interest in macroeconomics, banking or even politics, will find this an intriguing examination of the money and credit. If you are considering it for high school credit, students would benefit from a summary essay or presentation on each section. Indexed. 493 pgs. HC.~ Deanne

    Although this is titled as an economics course, it is probably more specifically personal finance. This planner combines with Bankruptcy of our Nation and the Money Wise DVD to teach high school students about the state of the finances of our country and what personal things can be done to survive and thrive in this present and future economics crisis. The course is laid out in 180 daily lessons but equals only ½ high school credit just double up on the lessons if you want to finish in one semester. The suggested schedule is printed in the book and offers space to record due dates for assignments and grade recording. Worksheets are provided to accompany the book and DVD, along with quizzes, tests, and an answer key. This study will biblically prepare your high school student to be fiscally responsible even if the government isn't. ~ Donna

    Learning to make correct change is a valuable skill that is quickly being lost in this day of automated cash registers and calculators. Whether you desire to teach change-making or simply money management skills (how quickly do I run out of money when buying everything I want!), this money set will be a valuable hands-on learning resource in the classroom or at home.

    A sturdy 18½"x10½" plastic case contains 12 compartments-six each for bills and coins. A clear plastic lid is included for easy storage. Included bills are realistic, down to the use of two-colored graphics, and measure 2"x5 ½". Set contains 100 each of dollar bills, fives, tens and twenties, and 50 each of fifties and hundreds. Authentic in appearance, the coins have authentic dimensions (although thicker), groves, if applicable, and are colored as their real counterparts. Coinage consists of 100 each of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters plus 50 each of Kennedy half-dollars and Sacajawea dollar coins. This would make a great tool for learning money skills with a mock store or alongside mom and dad during a monthly budget meeting. ~ Deanne

    There is so much to be learned using play money! My kids used to make a pet shop with their stuffed animals and I would come and buy something at their store. It was darling and they would have loved having play money to use. Think of the counting and math they have to do when making change! This large wooden tray has 6 places for bills and 5 spots for change. All of the money is realistic in size and color, though clearly pretend. The box measures 18" long x 10.25 wide and 1.25" high. Use this set in your math lessons when kids are learning about money. You could even use the pretend money for behavior incentives and let them buy "privileges" around the house once a week. At the bottom of each box area is a picture of what goes there. Bills include a stack of $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100. Coins include a bag of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and half dollars over 500 pieces in all. There is plenty here to play with! ~ Sara
