ABCs of saving

Sir -- Seeing that our country is in a very bad state financially, perhaps it would be a good idea to try and make sure that nothing like this ever happens again?

The first steps in my opinion would be to make sure our children are taught to save.

From their very first pay packet, saving something, no matter how small, should be instilled from a young age. That way, as they grow older they will appreciate and value everything. They will soon also learn that "little and often fills the purse".
