Living Off the Land – Personal Finance Lesson

This video from Reuters features a short story about a British economics student that is trying to spend a year living without spending any cash or using credit cards.

Applications for Education
This video could be a good discussion starter for a lesson in personal finances and spending. Students could explore the problems that a person might confront by trying to spend a year without spending any money.

On a related note I recently read a series of blog posts about trying to spend seven days without spending any money. You can read the author’s experiences here.
