    The intent is to increase financial literacy, answer questions, as well as study various aspects of finance.

    Perhaps groups should be broken up into beginner, intermediate, and advanced? Not everyone will be interested in all aspects of finance and economics.

    This is something I have been meaning to do for quite awhile.

    What subjects would you like to see addressed or discussed?

    My true interests lie in political economy.

    For the youth, it would be very beneficial for each to have a financial mentor who teaches and guides them on how to conduct their financial business for their benefit in accordance with their personality, style, goals, and interests.

    Wouldn't be a bad idea for some adults either.

    When you say economics, how deep do you wish to get?

    Do you know of the different schools of economic thought such as Austrian, Chicago, Keynesian, etc?

    Economic doctrines such as bullionism, mercantilism, socialism, capitalism,etc?

    When you say economics, do you mean the markets?

    When I think of economics, my first concern is my household. State (and its political subdivisions), national, and global economies are secondary to me.

    There is also trading in addition to investing.
    Do you know what type of investments you are interested in?

    Would you like to do this as asynchronous discussions? Would reading books on these subjects interest you?

    Are you looking more for strategies or understanding the nature of these subjects?

    Do you have any financial goals established for yourself?

    Do you have any opinions, philosophies on the subjects that you raised?

    What are your expectations with regard to this group as to what you get out of it?

    I merely have deep interests in these subjects and wish to seek out other like minded people.
    Exchange ideas, opinions, views, resources, books ...

    Also, I have a habit of digging up materials that most people have never heard of, read, or considered.

    My formal background and training is in computer science.
