Watch Millennials Take on Gen-Xers. Who Has the Money Skills?

Kicking off our 10th season and our new series, From Bartering to Bitcoin
The scoreboard from our generational money showdown.


This week's show will mark the 10th season of Spark and the start of our new series, From Bartering to Bitcoin: the future of money in a digital world.

To kick things off we decided to pit some of the younger people in our office (the"Millennials") against the Gen-Xers, to see who knew more about money.

You can watch the whole stream below:

There was trivia, a challenge to balance a cheque book, and a race to roll coins.

Check out the video to see how everyone did, but in the mean time, here is a picture of our winners enjoying their prize: a novelty sized chocolate toonie.
