The Economic Socialisation of Young People

Adrian Furnham, 2008
ISBN 978-1-904863-33-5

All parents want their children to be "savvy" about money. All governments want their citizens to be informed, sensible and responsible when it comes to earning, saving, spending and investing money. In his latest book, Professor Adrian Furnham investigates the economic socialisation of children and adolescents. He looks at how, when and why some people become economically literate and others do not, and attempts a comprehensive and critical evaluation of the scattered interdisciplinary research in this much neglected and important field. This is a book that will be welcomed by many different groups of people - not least parents bewildered by the complexities and pitfalls of pocket-money systems. Adrian Furnham is Professor of Psychology at University College London. He was educated at the London School of Economics and at Oxford University. Professor Furnham has written over 700 scientific papers and 55 books, and is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society. He is on the editorial board of a number of international journals, writes regularly for the Sunday Times and the Daily Telegraph and is a regular contributor to BBC radio and television.
