James Surowiecki on Financial Illiteracy

James Surowiecki writes about one of this blog’s frequent topics of interest: financial illiteracy. Surowiecki includes insights from Annamaria Lusardi‘s research and Gary Rivlin‘s new book, Broke, USA. He proposes a “a financial equivalent of drivers’ ed” and points out that “[i]f financial education taught people only how little they actually know, it would accomplish quite a lot.”[%comments]
