Lesson 13
Why Not Save?

The students examine risk-oriented behavior, considering why people often engage in behavior that is dangerous or unhealthy. They are introduced to the concept of cost/benefit analysis and asked to apply what they learn to questions about saving. They generate lists of savings goals and categorize those goals as short-term, mediumterm, and long-term. They learn why longterm goals are more difficult to achieve than short-term goals.
