An Epidemic: A lack of Financial Literacy
TEDx synopsis:
“My parents weren't going to be there for me every time I needed to make a financial decision, and I had to find a way to learn about this stuff fast! How are students supposed to learn about foreign terminology commonly found in financial documents as well as what consequences their action, inaction, or lack of financial understanding may result in?” says Chohan.
