    Question "Monetary" or "Financial"?

    Hi there,

    Is there any better choice for "monetary" in this sentence?

    '...people value higher education for monetary reasons...'

    Many thanks...

    Will that be OK?

    '...people value higher education for monetary reasons...'

    I would use financial, but reasons is not a very good choice of word because it could mean the cost or the gain in higher earnings.
