The government’s role in improving financial literacy will be the key question addressed this morning at the 2011 Financial Literacy and Education Summit (join and watch the live Webcast beginning at 9:30am EST).
Co-hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Visa Inc., this fifth annual Summit will bring together global leaders in financial education to address the critical issue of improving financial literacy for people of all ages while exploring how government and the private sector can work together to equip consumers with the tools needed to make wise financial decisions.
Visa’s Chief Financial Officer Byron Pollitt will open the summit and two distinguished panels will follow. One panel will be moderated by CNBC Anchor Maria Bartiromo and the other by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine Editor Janet Bodnar.
Panelists include the United States Executive Director of the World Bank Ian H. Solomon, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago Charles Evans, United States Treasurer Rosie Rios, and several members of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability.
