Home Economics


One of the most significant problems which faces civilized mankind is the one pertaining to finance and its management. This is true with groups and it is equally applicable to individuals. Proper management of the income of a nation or individual will make for success, contentment, and happiness. On the other hand, an income which is used without plans or system does not bring to its owner the greatest satisfaction. Poor management of incomes finally becomes a social, as well as an economic problem# Statistics, show that the greatest cause of desertion is a financial cause, yet desertion often occurs in families where there is an income sufficient, to yield happiness and to provide the necessities needed for normal life. The very basis of the home, materially speaking, is the family income, and this income determines the activities of the family on a whole. Whether the family will have a small car or a large one, whether it shall live in an aristocratic restricted district or down by the railroad tracks is determined by the income of that family..
