Financial Literacy

A personal finance research guide aimed at college students.

Financial Literacy: an Introduction

“The need to strengthen, expand and enhance education in economics and personal finance in our nation’s schools has never been more apparent.  We must prepare our students with the basics of economic and financial literacy so that they can succeed in life.  This literacy, together with reading and mathematics, is key to home ownership, being a smart consumer, managing credit, financing higher education, saving and investing, and responsible citizenship.”
