Agreed and not only that but key concepts like compound interest which have the capacity to change your whole life outlook. And the idea of your money 'working for you.' These are both concepts that can be easily translated to even primary school level.

True, but look at the pros Rus, with a job title like that you can be pretty Columbo-esque, and end your meetings with, 'One more thing,' walk around in a pale trench coat, etc.

Good point - knowing these things is especially useful when you're going around helping specific groups too and can tailor your assistance to the needs of the smaller groups/individuals within the groups.

I also think the concorde fallacy is a big deal in organisations but we fail to address it - mostly people think of it as the financial sunk cost but the cognitive sunk cost is sizeable too. People do not find it easy to move onto new ideas if they have invested creative time in creating them.
