"Knowing how to use a credit card wisely, shop for a mortgage, choose from a menu of employee benefits or save for retirement have never been more important than they are today. And yet too many people lack either the information or the incentive to know and understand how to make good decisions about personal finance. Clearly, education is the key to any effort to improve financial literacy."
