Strategies for Success in Financial Education. PDP 2009-3
Newberger, Robin G.; Paulson, Anna L.
Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago will host a conference, Financial Literacy, Financial Education, and the Federal Reserve: Strategies for Success, on September 11, 2009. This article reviews some of the financial education activities throughout the Federal Reserve System. The topics these initiatives cover include financial skill building, economic education, bank account ownership, financial planning, wealth accumulation, consumer protection, and foreclosures--issues that affect many people at different stages of their lives. While the topics discussed and the methods to reach the targeted audiences may differ across locations, the 12 Federal Reserve Banks and the Federal Reserve Board bring common strengths to bear on many of these initiatives. One of the strengths of the regional Feds with respect to financial literacy is their ability to rigorously analyze the educational needs in their districts. (Contains 1 footnote.)
