Description

You pay for that cool pair of shoes or a new CD. But what happens to that money once it leaves your hands? Who actually pockets it or puts it into the bank? This lively, kid-friendly book answers these questions and more:

• Why are designer jeans so much more expensive than no-name ones? • Why does a burger cost $4.50 when the ingredients only cost $1.38? • How do credit cards work?

Discover the trail your money takes as it goes to pay for everything including the raw materials used to make a product, the workers who produce it, and the advertisers who promote it.

Humorous illustrations demystify the process by providing a visual breakdown of all the elements involved in monetary transactions. Accessible and fun, Follow Your Money is a vital introduction to the way money flows.

Editorial Review

“… simply by explaining how a credit card works or why energy companies make a dollar on seemingly every transaction, readers will find themselves wondering about transparency and the ownership of natural resources.”
