Our country is still facing supply chain issues, rising inflation, worker and wage pressure, 

and rising interest rates even as the worst effects of COVID-19 have passed. Many Americans struggle to understand all this-and to 

plan around it-due to a lack of financial literacy. Millions of Americans are at risk of losing their American Dream 

when they do not have adequate knowledge. Increasing access to financial education is an opportunity and a responsibility of

the private sector to help solve this problem.There is a great need for such an effort.
