signed MARCO believes that financial literacy must be at the forefront of education and economic policies. Managing finances and making informed decisions about investments and business ventures, as widely recognized important life skills, must be acquired as soon as one recognizes his economic being.

Not surprisingly, financial literacy requires a background on financial principles including saving and building emergency funds, engaging in and managing debts, controlling personal finances, taking advantage of compound interests, and making investments as grounded on the increasing value of money and other assets over time.
