April is Financial Literacy Month

To mark April as Financial Literacy Month, the Global Center for Financial Literacy at GWSB is hosting a breakfast panel discussion on April 16 in partnership with Washington Post Live.

The panel will discuss how to better educate consumers on wise spending and saving practices. Financial experts will offer tips and share advice on the best ways to invest wisely, and on avoiding common financial pitfalls.

Meanwhile, the center’s spring Financial Literacy Seminar Series (FLSS) continues.

On April 4, Sylvester Schieber, former chairman of the Social Security Advisory Board, gave a presentation on his book,  Predictable Surprise: The Unraveling of the U.S. Retirement System. Click here to read an abstract of the book.

The upcoming seminars are:

  • April 18, John Friedman, Harvard University
