Financial literacy in a post-COVID world

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Recently, I read Annamaria Lusardi’s article in Forbes about the importance of financial literacy in light of the COVID-19 economic recession.I’ve felt the devastating financial consequences of the pandemic in my own community: An eerily empty downtown. Jobs harder to come by. Dozens of restaurants closed for good.In the midst of this nationwide hardship, Lusardi (herself an economist and personal finance professor) and a team of co-authors set out to review the research and answer the question: Could building financial literacy really build financial resilience for American families? Or, more simply: does financial literacy work?Her team’s findings confirm what the team at Zogo already believed to be true: that financial education makes a difference — a great difference — in people’s lives.

Hull target Sagbo cleared for talks

first_img Hull manager Steve Bruce has already confirmed talks have taken place about signing Sagbo, with the newly-promoted Premier League club reported to have bid £1.6million for the 25-year-old former Monaco forward. Although Evian did not name Hull in a short statement, or confirm a fee had been agreed, they said Sagbo had been given the go-ahead to hold talks with a club in England. Evian announced on their website: “Evian Thonon Gaillard FC have authorised Yannick Sagbo to go to England to visit the facilities and meet the leaders of a club, in the case of an eventual transfer.” Regarding French-born Ivorian Sagbo, Bruce told the Hull Daily Mail: “We’re in conversations. “My chief executive is speaking with Evian and we’re hopeful that we can get something done because he would be a good addition. “He’s a little bit different to what we’ve got. He’s quick, he’s direct and he wants to run in behind. “It’s hard talking about a player who belongs to another club but there has been dialogue and we’ll see where it takes us. We’ll be patient and see what develops.” Evian striker Yannick Sagbo appears to have moved a step closer to joining Hull after his club gave him permission to travel to England.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
