What the heck's a Googolplex?*
Ever wonder: Which is worth more—a 1978 Boba Fett action figure or a 1989 Hot Wheels Lamborghini? If the U.S. could run out of money? Who's taking money out of your paycheck? You'll find the answers to these and a googol of other questions by reading Googolplex’s guide for student moneymakers.
Googolplex contains stories, games, and puzzles for elementary, middle, and high school students. It's all about money—getting it, saving it, spending it, borrowing it. It'll show you how business and the economy work and how you can take control of your financial future. And it'll make you laugh. Read Googolplex today. And come back regularly. You'll find something new each month.
*Googolplex is the largest number with a name. If we could know how many atoms there are in the universe, that number would still be less than a Googolplex. Notice that Googolplex is not simply the largest number, because there is always Googolplex + 1!
