These videos offer the presentations of the first annual conference of the Financial Literacy Research Consortium, entitled New Insights and Advances in Financial Literacy: Translation, Dissemination, Change. The event on Nov. 18 and 19, 2010 brought together scholars from the Consortium to present their work and discuss how programs, educational products, and policies can best promote financial planning and financial security. The event was sponsored by the Social Security Administration and hosted by the Financial Literacy Center (RAND, Dartmouth College, and the Wharton School), with participation from the Center for Financial Literacy (Boston College) and the Center for Financial Security (University of Wisconsin).
