Personal financial literacy education makes certain assumptions about the nature of financial literacy and the skills and knowledge that learners need to master to be financially literate. This paper questions current definitions and argues for an alternative that acknowledges financial literacy as a social practice. It explores the social capital dimension of financial literacy and the implications this has for education.
