Most college educated Americans can’t ace this test about money…CAN YOU?

Understanding “money” is a valuable skill that does not get much attention in school. Most high schools don’t teach students simple accounting or the power of “interest”. Even in college, these topics are generally reserved for those in Business school.

But we all need and spend money, so shouldn’t we all be taught some important basics about it?

This short, 3 question quiz will evaluate your general understanding of “money” in 3 general fields. Your results will tell you one of two things:

  1. You have above average understanding of money
  2. You have an average, or possibly below average understanding of money

This is a financial literacy test that was designed about 10 years ago by a couple of Business School professors. It was designed to measure the ability of populations to be "effective economic decision makers". GOOD LUCK!!

1. Suppose you have $100 in a savings account, and the interest rate was 2% per year. After five years, how much do you think you would have in the account if you left the money to grow?
2. Imagine that the interest rate on your savings account was 1% per year and inflation was 2% per year. After one year, how much would you be able to buy with the money in this account?
3. Is this statement TRUE or FALSE?

Buying a single company's stock usually provides a safer return than a stock mutual fund.
