FIM 2013 theme song urges individuals to let go of bad habits

The 2013 Financial Information Month theme song and accompanying video, which were produced by “Daddy Chess”, the reigning Soca Monarch in the Commonwealth of Dominica, demonstrate a masterful integration of education and entertainment, a release from the East Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) says.{{more}}

The theme, for the 12th year of observing October as Financial Information Month in the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU) is “Reshaping Our Future – Starting Now”. The theme calls for new vision, new thinking, new capabilities and new actions to drive the economic prosperity of the people of the ECCU.

This call to action is clearly reflected in the theme song, titled: “Starting Now”, which encourages persons to let go of bad habits such as inertia, despondency, low productivity and spending without a budget in favour of vision, collaboration and financial discipline.

Financial Information Month is a collaborative effort among the ECCU member governments, financial and academic institutions, the media, private and public sector institutions and community-based groups. The month forms part of an ECCU financial education programme coordinated by the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB).
