Money Lessons From The Oscars

oscarstatueplain

Who said you couldn’t learn from Hollywood? In a recent MSN Money article, Liz Weston gives a run down of Oscar nominated movies and the financial lessons each one can teach.

True Grit

The message: Don’t be afraid to haggle

The King’s Speech

The message: Sometimes experience and integrity matter more than fancy credentials.

127 Hours

The message: Overconfidence can lead to disaster.

Inception

The message: Question your assumptions.

The Social Network

The message: Pick your battles.

The Kids Are All Right

The message: Choose your contractor carefully.

Toy Story 3

The message: Don’t hoard. Share.

I actually look forward to re-watching these movies and seeing if I get the same message. Be sure to read the original post to get a breakdown of the financial lessons you can learn.
