YOUTH AND THE ECONOMY

November 21, 2009

In this series, four Y-Press journalists explore how the current economy has affected youth. While many stories have been done about adults and the economy, few mentioned teens. However, teens not only spend money, they make it.

Seventeen-year-old Michelle Hu asks kids about the importance of education and knowledge when dealing with money. Jessika Officer, also 17, talks with one teen about how the financial fiasco of 2008 damaged his college funds. Hrishi Deshpande, 14, investigates how the downturn has affected teen spending habits. Vincent Demyan, 15, finishes the series with a story about teen entrepreneurs. Despite their youth, teens do play a big role in the economy.
