This week’s ‘Thunk’.

Each week I will upload a ‘Thunk’ to our blog.

Spend some time talking about the Thunk with a friend or family member, perhaps during a family meal or when you are on a journey in the car.

And don’t forget to share your opinion in the comments section.

There are no right and wrong answers to these questions, but make sure you give a reason with your answer.

This week’s Thunk:

If you borrowed a million pounds, would it make you a millionaire?

    I had a discussion about this Thunk with my family as we went on a walk today. There were different opinions and a variety of reasons given to back up each person’s opinion.

    I believe that if I borrowed a million pounds I wouldn’t be a millionaire. Even though I would have a million pounds, the money would not be mine, I would need to give it back at some point because I only borrowed it. If I spent the money on lots of nice, expensive things I might get myself into trouble as I might not be able to give back the million pounds I borrowed.

    Do you agree or disagree with me? Why?

    No because you would have to give the money back if you borrowed it.

    no because you would still have to give the money back at some point.

    No because you have borrowed the million pounds and that means you have not earned it you have borrowed so it is not yours rightfully.

    No because if you borrowed it and spent all of it you would get into trouble because you have to pay back all the money.

    No because you have borrowed the money and where ever you borrowed it from you would have to give it back .

    The resin you borrowed a million pounds is because you probably didn’t have it in the first place!
