Discussion points: 

 1) Are you surprised to see that this many Canadians are having financial difficulties? What kind of financial pressures are you and your classmates facing?

2) We are in the midst of a federal election campaign. Do you think these pocketbook issues are being adequately addressed

3) In Illustration 7-7 of Wiley’s Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision-Making , we see a description of the principles of cash management. Which of these principles would be applicable to Canadian households?
