Financial Resource Guides - The Simple Dollar

The Simple Dollar is a website dedicated to conducting data driven and unbiased research that for the last few years has served as a trusted resource for families, organizations and major publications such as Forbes, Business Insider, and The Wall Street Journal.

A recent study found that over half (study estimated 70%) of Americans are effectively financially illiterate. Which probably isn’t surprising given the fact that many young people are never taught basic financial concepts. For example, only about 20 states require a personal finance class for high school students. So, in an effort to be a part of the solution, The Simple Dollar has created a series of guides designed for students and parents that give practical advice on developing and building upon healthy financial habits throughout one's life as well as a comprehensive handbook on credit.
