Here is the link to Fed Governor Duke's speech yesterday to the JumpStart Coalition conference to promote finacial literacy. If you are interested in promoting financial literacy here is the game that the Coalition has released in a number of countries.
In its most recent 31 question survey the JumpStart Coalition found that high school students scored 48.3% and college students 62.2%. Thus, college students, by the time they graduate are close to being finacially literate. As the Coalition points out, however, only 25% of U.S. children are graduating from college and therefore 75% of young Americans struggle making financial decisions.
Thoughts and observations for those investing on their own or contemplating doing it themselves.

Haven't had a chance to view the video yet, but scored two goals in a 5 minute game. The game was surprisingly good.ReplyDelete
I scored a goal pretty quickly in the game also. That must mean we're at least a bit financially literate (ha!ha!).ReplyDelete
I scored a goal in 1:37 (world class level) The answers seem a little obvious. hah!ReplyDelete
You don't know what it does to a father's heart to hear his daughter say the answers are obvious!ReplyDelete
