Just because someone is financially “illiterate” with the conventional financial system does not mean they are unskilled at managing the base problems that the system was built to solve
We must never forget how much can be learned from those who do things differently. How important it is for those of us who teach, to also listen and learn… not just about the latest tax law, but from those who have never heard of it.
