Banking on a Revolution

Financial education interventions are delivered in public schools, nonprofit organizations and workplaces in a variety of formats, such as workshops, lesson plans, and coaching sessions. Financial education, however, portends to help a person budget and learn their way out of poverty while ignoring rampant systemic oppression and discrimination. This chapter reviews the research on financial education and offers an alternative approach to this popular-yet-rarely-effective intervention. A popular education approach based on Paulo Freire’s book, Pedagogy of the Oppressed has the potential to raise critical consciousness, teach about financialized racial neoliberal capitalism, engage in political activism, and prepare us for a financial system revolution.

Keywords:   financial education, financial literacy, financial knowledge, Paulo Freire, emergent strategy, critical consciousness
