A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America
"This year's theme for National Consumer Protection Week, "Financial Literacy: A Sound Investment," encourages consumers to take steps to build a firm financial foundation. By becoming informed consumers, individuals can help plan for their future, protect their identity, and effectively manage their finances. It is important for citizens to be knowledgeable on financial matters such as choosing a health insurance plan, comparing savings and retirement plans, and realizing how credit scores can affect them. Education is the first line of defense in helping consumers manage their money wisely and safeguard themselves against fraud and identity theft."
Bravo for this Mr. President. Read the entire proclaimation here. Let me know what you think.
Onward with HOPE,
John Hope Bryant
Chairman, Operation HOPE
Vice chairman, U.S. President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy
