In this episode, Jim Oliver and Connor Boyack discuss:
- The Tuttle Twins – a series of books, about the free market, written and created by Connor in a unique and innovative way that allows children age 5 – 11 to understand political and economic ideas.
- The lack of age-appropriate educational resources and how the curriculum in our education system doesn’t teach these economic and social principals.
- The unintentional secondary audience of parents that have also benefited from sharing these stories with their child.
- The Tuttle Twins series creates a foundation that parents can now build on and have some really fun conversations with their children about topics like foreign policy, entrepreneurship, the Federal Reserve, inflation, and money.
- If you don’t understand the concept, the details are irrelevant.
- Utilize the resources available that will help educate you to the truth.
“We take these classic works where people have explained core ideas that the public needs to learn and then we take it one step further to make it more accessible even to kids.” – Connor Boyack
