Revealing the real story behind saving and spending money, this book is the ultimate guide for the money-savvy teenager. There is an old saying that 'money makes the world go around', and indeed we spend money on one thing or another each and every day. We use it so often that we have begun to take it for granted. In Stash or Splash? , Liam Croke gives an invaluable insight into money, providing young people with the tools to discover how to make and spend money wisely. Delving into the importance of saving and budgeting, starting a business, planning for the future, debit cards, loans and interest rates, Stash or Splash? provides all the essential information for investing money, in an easy-to-understand format. Explaining the economy, the stock market, the 'credit crunch' and the recession, this book also unravels the mysteries of credit cards and mortgages, showing the many options for managing money. Stash or Splash? shows that saving money, spending it wisely and planning for the future are important skills that everyone needs as they grow older. It is often said that money is neither good nor bad but that it is what is done with it that counts.
