The Need for Economic Education

"There is a huge difference between the public's awareness of political facts and its understanding of business facts. Some 35% qualify as well-informed about politics. Only 3% are well-informed about business and economics."
Paul Volcker, Former Chairman of Federal Reserve Board.
