Author David Bianchi Explains Why He Wrote BLUE CHIP KIDS, What Every Child and
Parent Should Know About Money, Investing and the Stock Market
It’s not surprising that most teens know more about social media than they do about basic financial skills. On April 1st, we have a special interview with a father who was frustrated by the lack of “entertaining” financial teaching materials for his 13-year-old son. That’s why attorney and investor David W. Bianchi wrote: BLUE CHIP KIDS: What Every Child and@ Parent Should Know About Money, Investing, and the Stock Market. His new book demystifies the basic principles about money matters and provides a much-needed introduction for children (and their parents) to the financial world around them. This fun and easy-to-read book is filled with simple examples and 165 illustrations that explain money and investing in 100 bite-size topics. It’s an important topic your viewers and readers will enjoy discussing.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT BLUE CHIP KIDS:
• Paying for things (checking accounts, credit and debit cards & electronic bill pay)
• Understanding currencies, the Euro, Bitcoins and exchange rates
• Budgeting and debt, financial statements and net worth
• How to teach your kids about dividends, yields, puts and calls
• The basics of buying and selling stocks
