Labour has proposed making financial capability education compulsory and National has said it would do the same. The danger is both see this as a ‘solution’ to the cash shortages of the 100,000 poorest families, who can’t afford rent and food, let alone other things bought with debt. It plays into the ‘blame the victim’ card.
