    What's your alternative? Provide a 'nanny' for everybody?

    I agree that sometimes experience is the best teacher. The schools could still do better at teaching math-especially applied math, not just abstract math.

    Math is never a bad skill to have but it still won't prevent people from making poor decisions, especially the young and inexperienced. Oh, and another thing that often goes with being young that leads to bad decisions: overconfidence. When you combine inexperience with overconfidence you can often get trouble. An excellent example of this would be the current occupier of the the Oval Office.
