While his financial advice is basic & valid I can't help but shudder at an English teacher writing "Like I said".

A survey from British Columbia Securities Commission found that at a time when personal debt levels and housing prices are soaring to record highs, recent high-school grads are nothing but optimistic about their financial future.
The survey of more than 3,000 17-to-20-year olds, released last week to kick off Financial Literacy Month, found that the average respondent expects to be raking in about $90,000 a year by the age of 30. That is roughly three times the national average.
Almost three-quarters of those surveyed think that they will be homeowners by the same age, despite government data estimating that only 42 per cent of 25-to-29-year olds are homeowners.
