Financial literacy isn't a skill -- it's a lifestyle. Take it from Curtis "Wall Street" Carroll. As an incarcerated individual, Caroll knows the power of a dollar. While in prison, he taught himself how to read and trade stocks, and now he shares a simple, powerful message: we all need to be more savvy with our money.

We could tell that those folks who were there listened to every word. I turned my subtitles on and played back some of what he said...
This man speaks...he will hit you.
One of the best TED speech ive ever seen, and the best that is not focused on some groundbreaking or esoteric topic such as black holes.
If this guy pleases, he can become a lecturer and professor of finance within 5 years, possibly even at an Ivy League university.

like ive said many times. young black males make up 40 percent of violent crime in the united states, yet make up about 15%of u.s. population. this does NOT mean that it is a result of the race that they are. it is the culture that they grow up in. these men grow up in broken homes and are taught that they will never be good enough so just go steal something. of course this is relevent to low income families of all races but it is more prominent in african american communities. what we must do as americans is to teach young people this financial literacy. to reach them that they can. this man made one of the best speeches ive heard in a while. @realdonaldtrump as a supporter of you i say that this man should be pardoned. he should also have the chance to teach children in all schools. because what he has to say is a message that many people need.
This guy's got communication skills. He is very articulate and has a good sense of humor and is very intelligent. He does not sound like one who has been illiterate for 22 years of his life. Determination is powerful.
I love it and hear what he’s saying, but; when you have a system that’s built to live off the sweat , blood, tears & life of not only melanated people, but the “Haves” vs the “Have Nots”(rich vs poor). It behooves all wealthy people’s who aren’t compassionate and oppressors. An higher heirachy. There needs to be a worker and based on the fears of both parties. The wealthy is not trying to give up their lofty status...I don’t care the color. The love of money or money in general will either highlight you as a better person(giver) or you become more worse(a taker). It’s the circumstances that individuals allow to control them. And as far as blacks. It’s not that we can’t do what white do(positive) the white ruling class of whites know our true history and our capabilities it’s the ignorant ones who don’t know us or our history. When u see whose controlling the world. It’s not the klans or skinheads, etc. it’s those liberals who feel that they’re just a little more civilized than their white counterparts. The lower class whites w/o proper education is just like us. Waste money and assets. When u look at The controlling families they’ve had their money for generations as compared to a David Duke type.
I'm glad this man did something productive with his time away, e.g. reading and math skills; but I'm not so sure that learning to trade stocks is such a boon to mankind, at least not to the degree that so many commenters are prepared to overthrow the state's need for order. If the man had said he learned to read and build bridges, or work as a radiology technician, or even run a small business making shoes for working people, I would have thought more of it. But how is learning to trade stocks any less self-centered than his prior life of robbing gumball machines, if not more so. It's just possible he's preparing his next score. Maybe he was in the cell next to Bernie Madoff.
So basically if you want free education paid for by the taxpayers go to prison and once you get out they help you with everything
You can't sell blood in America you can only sell plasma and there's a lot of people in America who sell their plasma not just people who are in the Inner City I lived in a small City in the midwest that has five universities in it and there was always students from those colleges in there donating plasma so I don't buy the Heartbreak story of some Thug from Oakland who got lucky and now is applying all of his street knowledge to the stock market which is basically manipulating and speculating.
Anyone in America who takes out any kind of loan is a slave to the financial system not just Intercity people... Financial slavery knows no color

Its great he is rehabilitated. But he killed someone. The man he killed life would be worth nothing if he Carroll was released. Prison time is a combination of punishment, justice and protecting the community. The community has nothing to fear from this guy; but cmon, he took someones life. Thats a cardinal sin that can not be excused
Adam J Since when did justice turn into revenge, and also playing god? Who are u to call his crime a sin? Only god can say what’s a sin and what isn’t a sin, u are not god
it is great that he is rehabilitated, but that rehabilitation happened with no help from the people or place that was supposed to rehabilitate him
He did it on his own, now think about that, cuz if u think he should be banished from society to never return again for making a mistake then why would he or any other inmate’s choose to go out of their way to rehabilitate themselves?
The prisons DO NOT do anything to rehabilitate inmates, in fact, it’s set up for the inmates to get worse and become institutionalized, drugs are just as available as they are on the streets, inmates that choose to better themselves are ostracized by other inmates and the guards, so why would ppl choose to become a better human being when it’s not only easier to stay the way u are, but it’s beneficial to stay the way u are
I don’t understand how ppl have changed justice into revenge, why do we even call it rehabilitation when everybody knows that’s not what happens to inmates?
I’m not saying his crime isn’t wrong, but if u think that he hasn’t learned his lesson, payed his debt to society, and has been punished enough by having to spend his life from the age of 17 til he’s damn near 50 for what he did
Then why are ppl getting locked up in the first place? Why not just kill everybody since they are looked at like they shouldn’t return to live amongst the people after they’ve done what they were ordered to do?
Idk why ppl look at inmates like if they’re better than them and that’s what makes it easier to treat them like leppers, and idk if u were going to say that I sympathize with them cuz I’m probably a criminal, but no I’ve never been an inmate
I wish Warren Buffet could see this, he has admitted being born a white male has come a long way to being one of the richest men in the world. He's expressed his concern with minorities and financial issues. Get these two together in a room and they'd make history.
what is doing this young man in there when are so many people in big chairs sitting and robing to the poor, He should be out teaching in colleges and in schools, I feel deception to this system. He must be out and writing books and teaching. Mister Curtis all my respect for you, I really admire you.
Financial literacy for all especially low income individuals could help cut down crime........but look at Bernie Madoff was he not financially literate but stilll stole from his friends,clients and family
The importance of his street education should not be understated. Constant struggle to eat and survive clearly embedded very useful skills and characteristics. That hustle, passion and drive to better himself and those around him is founded on his struggle. Inspiring person.
The education system in most western countries do not include personal finance. That's not an oversight. The system wants to keep us down. And it's very important to the Democrats that blacks are kept down.

The last statement hit home. "Take my class and let me show you. How much money you lose when you get emotional."
What an intelligent man, truly... doing good if this isnt rehabilitation than what is. This mans word has the power to move mountains if hes ever truly giving an opportunity to reach masses. I truly hope i get to see it in my life time.
He talk as is not as those world of corporation feed you or the nation, all those false hope , and those false, dream and those false , trap, to keep you at the end in misery , and jail and bankruptcy, , that is not all, your family and your future generation also pay for it,
Uploading contracts to an online database should not take too long, and with the right solution, there should be a way to quickly drag and drop them into folders. Of course, the contract management team may want to give some thought as to how those folders are categorized. In some industries, it may make sense to classify them by agreement type, whereas in others they may need to be grouped by timeframe or date. It is obviously important to do what makes sense for your company and to ensure everyone understands the classification system that is instituted. With this sort of well-oiled system in place, it is a lot easier to keep a handle on things.
Divide and Conquer.
This is another area that is very industry-dependent, but it is highly unlikely that any company can afford to have an entire contract team devoted to managing one portfolio. More than likely, it is more realistic to divvy up the team and the contracts so that there is a leader for each relevant sphere. The entire team will obviously have to coordinate and communicate, but resources must be allocated in the most efficient manner possible. In turn, this will allow for several individuals to keep an eye on a smaller batch of contracts, thereby facilitating those periodic reviews.
