Your Native Language Affects your Ability to Save Money?!

What does your native language have to do with saving cash?

A TED Talk with Keith Chen dives into the concept that the very language you learned growing up can actually have an effect on your ability to save money!

Sounds kind of wild, but if you watch the talk below, you'll find out why it is that this researcher believes your native language does, indeed, have an impact on your innate thinking about the future and, thus, your tendency to think about the world in a way which either makes you more or less likely to save money or spend money.

I don't want to spoil the fun, so I won't say any more than I already have. Enjoy!
