Are College Grads Financially Illiterate?

“The average college graduate doesn’t know how to do anything or how to function in the world.”

– David Finney, President of Champlain College

According to Ron Lieber's column in The New York Times, Champlain's students tend toward the geekish. Even so, it's discouraging to encounter yet another example of financial illiteracy among supposedly educated Americans. For assorted reader comments on the column, see this Bucks post. (One comment links to this 1999 article, so scary back then that I still remember it.)
