Farrakhan Calls For Revolution In Our Spending And Advises Teach Our Youth About Money

Our Future! But What type of future will we leave them?


"And we can get our children involved! 

But nowadays, if you give your child a nickel, they’ll “spit” on you:  “Mommy, what is this? Anickel?  What can I do with that?”—babies will tell you that!  What we are saying is that we would like you to get our children involved by teaching them the value of “saving and investing”: “Sweetheart, I’m giving you 50 cents today, but I want you to put 5 cents away in a National Savings Program.” 

We must start teaching the babies, and begin to regenerate a culture of “purposeful saving and investing.”  This is what Jewish people teach their children.  This is what The Indians from the subcontinent of India teach their children.  This is what The Chinese and The Koreans, and others, teach their children.  So, we must start!"

(The above excerpt is from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s Saviours’ Day keynote address he delivered at the U.I.C. Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois on Sunday, February 24, 2013 titled “Muhammad’s Economic Blueprint: Ending Poverty & Want.”  This portion of the message serves as Part 31 of his 52-week Lecture Series on “The Time and What Must Be Done,” which aired on Saturday, August 10, 2013.
