Financial Literacy

The Great Recession of 2008–2009 put millions of Americans through a financial wringer, lowering personal net worth and forcing delayed retirement plans. The personal savings rates of Americans was in a steady decline over the course of two decades, bottoming out between 2005 and 2008. Since then, one positive legacy resulting from the recession, is a renewed focus on financial literacy education across America. In response government, teachers, school districts, businesses and financial institutions have joined forces to educate Americans of all ages on the value of obtaining the tools, methods and resources to help them reach financial health.
