    What can be done to promote and spread financial education and literacy for Nubians throughout their communities?

    How would you define financial literacy?

    Defining commonly used financial terms we may hear throughout the media in easy to understand terms would be a great first start.

    Allow yourself and others to consider this your thread.
    Steer it as you see fit.

    Simple questions such as: "What is money? What is a stock? What is a mortgage?" would go a long way for many of us.

    I think what most people desire, IMHO, is direction on how to make good financial decisions.

    What are your thoughts on the stock market or the U.S. dollar?

    Great thread, questions, and effort! :toast:

    Off the top, i'd think financial literacy would be defined as financial stability.

    I'm tired of folk laying claim to knowledge, with no evidence of that knowledge in their life.

    I'll be the first to admit that i have no money, which is indicative that i know little about it.

    That's probably the case for many of our people, since most are in the same boat as me.

    I'd love to approach this topic considering the most ignorant of us, which happens to include me.

    What are the first steps? How do i get money? How do i keep it? How should i view it?

    Brother Abstract asked about retirement, and i can't begin to think of tomorrow, when i can't eat today!

    HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP :)

    Thanks Brother Shikamaru !!! :kiss:

    Love You!

    :heart:

    I got some questions of a private nature...Shikamaru. Id like to PM you if possible. I got some all these different options to look at 401ks, Roths, IRA, ESA for my daughter....n all that. Im too busy to read the fine print, which I know is dumb, but hey...

    My thought on the US dollar is that its near worthless now, so Im worried bout all these investments in the future. They may be worthless. Does any one really need all that, when the market is flattened out and actually looks like its gettin no better?

    Cant trust the financial advisor on the job. He's fake. Always good to read you.
