The ancient Greeks did teaching right. So did the Romans. And the Brits… until the enlightenment period anyway.
Thousands of years ago, students were schooled in the Trivium – a 3-part system that emphasized learning layer-by-layer in order to create a strong critical thinking foundation for all future pursuits. First, students were taught grammar – the foundations of all expression. Students were then taught to take their knowledge of grammar, and apply it through systems of logic. This enabled critical thought, original ideas and strong analysis. Finally, students learned the art of rhetoric – taking their own ideas, creating defensible arguments, and convincing others that they were correct.
We’re taking the Trivium approach, and we’re applying it to finance.
