The Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) published a a while ago that I meant to post. Feel free to take it, and then click on the links on the left for more info on some of their findings. Embarassingly, I only scored a 75% (that’s a C), which although higher than the average American at 49%, is still pretty dismal considering all the education I’ve had.

Although the parts are no doubt edited down so that only the most unbelievable bits are aired, here’s a funny clip from Jaywalking on money matters from the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Surprisingly, I got 29/33 (87%) and I’m not American.

With regard to the Jay Leno clip, it looks like a pretty good arguement for all voters to pass a financial literacy test before being allowed to vote – a lot of the candidates would probably fail as well.

I think this would at least boot everyone’s literacy for the better. That in itself wouldn’t be so bad

It’s amazing how little most people know about finance. I was reading on another personal finance blog (I unfortunately can’t remember the name right now) about this interesting idea of having sort of a “board of directors” to help you with the financial stuff. In reality it sounds more fancy than it is. The underlying idea is that you should have people who have a good grasp of finance to help you make the best decisions.

Wow, smashing outcome about this post. Could wish to tell me how long time this will take? Just because I would like to write some thesis titles or probably that will be much better to detect the buy dissertation service. Thnx.

The home loans are important for people, which are willing to ground their career. By the way, it’s not really hard to receive a short term loan.

Don‘t try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.

Slightly off the subject maybe, but a plea for people to consider the ethics of purchasing fashionclothes. Do try and think about, for example, the materials your items are made with, the human rights of the factories where they’re made and the green credentials of the clothes retailer. Oh, and endeavour to pass on, instead of discarding. Thanks!!!!
