    Any Shows on Personal Finance?

    Does anybody know of any decent shows dealing personal finance on television? I am teaching a unit on Econ later in the year and will be doing a unit on personal finance/consumer economics. It is 6th grade and the kids love seeing stuff that pertains to what we're learning is on TV. I am sure there is stuff out there that would be good but wasn't sure off the top of my head and figured this was the place to go for some ideas



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Kramer on Mad Money seems to have enough energy to entertain 6th graders for a while.

    Have to add Dave as well. Great show and I find him more tolerable than Suze. Also, the "plasectomy" segments where people destroy credit cards in different fashions is sure to entertain 6th graders.

    Ugh. I wouldn't show him unless you plan to hold him up as an example of how NOT to approach your finances and investments.

    Clark Howard is on CNN- Headline News on the weekends. Very nice, down to earth guy. Similar to Dave Ramsey.

    Re: Any Shows on Personal Finance?

    Make sure you show them something about compounding interest. When I was 16 and started out at Hy-Vee I had a good conversation with someone in their 50's who explained 401K's to me, the difference it made to start young, and it made a huge difference.

    Re: Any Shows on Personal Finance?

    Great, thanks guys! Sounds like some good ideas for shows to check out...I won't be teaching it til the end of the school year but thought it would be good to get a few shows to check out and maybe tape before then so I could have some solid stuff that pertains specifically what we're talking about and not just thrown together last minute...not that I would procrastinate



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Just checked out Dave Ramsey's website and he has a whole section on teaching kids personal finance and has a curriculum guide. I'm sure some of it costs money but may be worth a look as well.
