PEOPLE YOU SHOULD KNOW, JOHN HOPE BRYANT and THE SILVER RIGHTS MOVEMENT.
With the housing market crush and anxiety around the economy there are many of us that cannot make out the heads or tails of what is going on. And this is what is now commonly refered to as financial illetracy affecting the majority of minorities. The market crush is being blamed on Sub prime loan borrowers who are financially illiterate.
Some of us are recent immigrants and just simply getting by. However if you live in America with its economic structure, shouldn't everyone acquire more than basic financial skills? As a result of the rampant financial ignorance that is not limited to the lower classes, there is a growing demand by civic leaders and advocates calling for the provision of financial literacy to all. One of these is John Hope Bryant, who refers to his advocacy as the Silver Rights Movement.
(For this semester I am taking Finance 002-Investments and would encourage anyone that feels challenged in financial knowledge to take this basic course).
John Hope Bryant
