Carl A. Rudsill Library Borrow it. Franklin's thrift became the cornerstone of a new kind of secular faith in the ordinary person's capacity to shape his lot and fortune in life. Later chapters document how in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, thrift moved into new domains. It became the animating idea behind social movements to promote children's school savings, create mutual savings banks and credit unions for working men and women, establish a federal savings bond program, and galvanize the nation to conserve resources during two world wars. It also includes actual policy recommendations for our present situation.

This collection of essays focuses on the history of thrift in America, starting with Benjamin Franklin and continuing through the 20th and early 21st centuries. The book focuses on how to encourage low and middle income Americans to save, and offers insights into why it is often hard to convince Americans to do so. The book is full of helpful insights, and often contradicts the conventional wisdom about the poor.
