Back in December 2008, I had discovered the existence of a U.S. Government financial literacy site, which made me laugh.  Well, I’m still laughing, but now the laughter is just a bit hysterical, and there are tears flowing as well.

In any case, here’s a rerun of the original post from my old mahout 34 blog:

I came across www.mymoney.gov recently, and that made my day. I howled with laughter for hours.

Imagine, our government actually has a national strategy for financial literacy, developed for our benefit by the U.S. Financial Literacy and Education Commission. This Commission’s motto is “Providing financial education resources for all Americans.”

My only question is: does anyone in Congress know about this?

Oh, what is even funnier is the fact that the little symbol that shows up next to the address in the navigation toolbar is – I am not making this up! – a red star! All I can say is: “Спасибо, товарищ, but your help with managing financial affairs we surely do not need!”
