How Literate are Financial Literacy Tests?

P4P026-FinancialLiteracyTestPart1How financially literate are students? Kim Butler and Todd Strobel head back to high school to take a test. Questions about Financial Literacy are asked, answered, and discussed, as well as why a few of the questions themselves might be misleading!

This financial literacy test features a segment about investing, financial responsibility and insurance, as well as a segment on credit cards and debt. There will be no talking during the test on today’s episode of the Prosperity Podcast.
