Financial Literacy, Financial Education and the Federal Reserve: Strategies for Success
About the Conference
—Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, April 17, 2009
The 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks and the Board of Governors play an important role in providing accurate and unbiased economic and financial information. There is a great deal of variety of how individual reserve banks design and implement their economic and financial education programs, the individuals they target and the organizations that they partner with.
The goal of this conference was to bring individuals within the Federal Reserve System who have an interest in economic and financial education together with researchers and representatives of partner organizations to do three things:
- Share strategies for designing successful programs and partnerships in financial literacy and financial education
- Discuss research that evaluates the effectiveness of financial education and counseling
- Learn from partners about what works and what could be improved
