Fed adds free educational materials for personal finance
The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has added new materials to an already-robust supply of free personal finance and economic education resources for students and consumers. The new materials can be found at the St. Louis Fed's Econ Lowdown web site for economic education resources. They include online courses, simulated online chats, videos, an audio podcast, and a mobile app.
The number of states requiring personal finance curriculum in public high schools is on the rise, and adults of all ages are often overwhelmed by choices when trying to decide how to save for retirement. With the St. Louis Fed's latest tools, students and consumers alike can learn about anything from choosing between retirement plans, to completing a W4 form, to the basics of supply and demand.
