The term “economic slavery” can have several meanings. The two most pervasive ones are forced labor and our current global financial system.

There are millions of forced child laborers in the world today. Sadly, kidnapping and child trafficking are highly related to this dark reality.

The global financial system may not directly affect most children, but it is an important topic to keep in mind for their later years and find ways to teach them about potential financial and economic pitfalls. As they get into their teens they will quickly be faced with related decisions about their future.
They must be aware of dangers such as debt bondage, credit cards, mortgages and debt in general. A good understanding of how our current financial system came to be would also be helpful (Wars, Central Banks, banking dynasties, etc.).
