The Thousand Million Dollar Education… (Money from a kids view)

If I asked you “Where does Money come from” or “What happens if you spend everything in your bank account” the answers would all be pretty close to the same. Now what happens if we ask a group of kids the same questions? Well, we just so happen to have done just that… Hope you enjoy their answers as much as I did.
