“The number one problem in today’s generation and economy is lack of financial literacy.” Alan Greenspan
The need for better financial literacy among American citizens is readily apparent:
The importance of financial literacy will continue to increase as life expectancy rises, job mobility increases, safety net programs such as social security are threatened and financial markets become increasingly complicated with an ever growing array of products and services. Inadequate education regarding financial literacy diminishes quality of life among Americans, but also threatens our security, competitiveness and political process.
