Деньги не порок

Money is not a vice

"Money, money, rubbish,
Forgetting peace and laziness.
Make money, make money,
And the rest is all rubbish."
In the Soviet Union, only greedy and evil pirates from the cartoon about Treasure Island could sing this, but worthy citizens firmly knew and instilled in their children that money is not the most important thing in our lives and it does not mean happiness. And the subtext was even more so “money is bad.” Where did this attitude that most of us grew up with come from? The point, it turns out, is that for most of human history, money was such a pie for everyone, and if someone got a bigger piece, it means that someone else got a smaller piece or didn’t get it at all. There was a limited supply of money, it was scarce, and there really couldn’t be enough for everyone. The situation changed when loans came into everyday life, there was suddenly a lot of money, money began to generate even more money, and now, in order to become rich, you don’t need to snatch a piece from the weaker. The paradigm has changed, now money is a tool that you need to learn to work with from childhood.
"A Dog Named Mani" is a story about a dog who tells his little owner what money is for, what opportunities it provides, and how to handle it. It all starts with simple things: a wish list, how and what to save for, what you can give up, how to earn extra money. Gradually, the information becomes more complex: we will talk about financial risks, mistakes, investments.
The plot of the story: a talking dog appears in the life of a girl, Kira, whose parents are experiencing serious difficulties with money. He will teach Kira financial literacy, and the girl will not let her family go around the world. The story is fascinating, easy to read, suitable for children from 8 years old to adolescence. And if parents themselves wouldn’t mind brushing up on their knowledge of economics, read along with your children!
