It is not in the best interest of banks to promote saving money at the cost of not possessing a credit card. Of course it is a guaranteed fact that all these children are being programed that they can't save money with a cash and carry lifestyle. Cash and carry is the only way to financial independence and no debts. Debt destroys families, lives, and the economy. Schools should not allow these adviser and their advertising into the schools.

People can try all the want and believe all they want that credit and debit cards are responsible banking but that is a lie. It doesn't matter how careful these card holders try to convince themselves they are saving money, its all a money trap to indoctrinate them into debt and borrowing. They preach investment is saving, it too is a trap and lie.

I'd love to challenge any of these banks at any time and I can prove the credit cards and debit cards and ATM's and banks hate debt free independent spending. They hate cash and carry and discourage it at every opportunity, especially in free banking advice classes.

I was there in the classroom videotaping. Not once did he mention a credit card. He promoted saving money by purchasing smart and not spending money on things you don't need.
