We all love a good movie. Movies take us on a journey and allow us to escape from reality for a couple of hours. But what if movies could teach us important money lessons?
The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
While the movie doesn't explicitly teach viewers about money, it does show how important it is to follow your dreams and never give up, no matter how difficult things may seem.
The Money Pit (1986)
While the movie is lighthearted and humorous, it does teach a valuable lesson about the importance of being smart with your money when making significant purchases like a home.
The Big Short (2015)
The movie does an excellent job of explaining some of the more complex financial concepts that led to the crisis in an easy way for viewers to understand. It also highlights the importance of being skeptical and doing your research before making any significant investment decisions.
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
While the movie glamorizes Belfort's illegal activities, it also serves as a cautionary tale about the dangers of greed and how easy it is to get caught up in white-collar crime.
While the movie is undoubtedly critical of the excesses of Wall Street, it also highlights the importance of hard work and integrity in business.
