This 18th paper in the BCSDV series discusses economic education, sometimes also called, "financial or economic literacy." The discussion describes well-established economic education programs based in domestic violence agencies in Iowa and St. Louis, Missouri and explores the effects of different settings on program development and evolution. The authors share the lessons learned from these programs' experiences and key issues to consider when developing economic education programs for battered women. The paper also includes an appendix by Laurie Holmes describing the Personal Economic Planning Curriculum (PEP) published by the Elizabeth Stone House in 1997.
