When is money important, and when does it affect our lives?
Unit 1 Concept Question When is money important, and when does it affect our lives?

Question of the Week How does money work?

Let's agree on one thing right from the start

Another thing about keeping your money in a piggy bank is that the amount of money you have is never more than what you have put into the piggy bank. If you put in \$5 every month, after a year you will have \$60. After ten years, you will have \$600. No more, no less. Money Word: INFLATION: the general increase in the cost of everything, from cars and houses to burgers and fries That means that in ten years, \$600 won't buy nearly as much stuff as it will now. Think about what has happened to the buying power of money. In 1960, a kid with a quarter could buy a slice of pizza for 15¢ and a soda for 10¢. Today, you'd probably need at least \$2 to buy the same meal! In 1960, a kid who had saved \$7 could buy a really great pair of sneakers. Today, you could use that \$7 to buy some very cool sneaker laces.
