This subject keeps coming up in Britain repeatedly. In the very early 1980s exactly the same approach was being suggested. I visited a number of schools to meet with the "school leavers" groups, and handed specimens of wage slips. Nobody knew where any of the figures came from. Over 3 lessons I taught them about gross & net pay, income tax, national insurance & pension deductions, and how to check if the deductions were correct. It didn't take long. This is the kind of integrated mathematics that should be incorporated into the curriculum....yet here we are more than 40 years later still talking about youngsters & poor mathematics skills.
It's great news that there are new rules on crypto advertising. But this podcast didn't mention any regulatory body that in the UK that investigates crypto scams and preferably has a track record in recovering monies for those scammed. Can you do a segment on this please?

the volume on all AJB podcasts seem to be very low. settings are to max but I still miss so much. no issues with other podcasts, please look at production. Or am I alone on this?
