12/14. I guessed on the compounding interest question. Was close to the correct answer but no cigar and misread another question. Those “Not” questions have to be read carefully. One of them tripped me up.

Enjoyed the quiz.
It’s a shame that Feinstein held onto the letter until now. She is determined to destroy this man’s life.

12 out of 14. I guess I know more than I thought about financial matters.

Has anyone else noticed this? When most media outlets report on the the stock market did today… They only tell you how much the Dow went up, or down, but omit telling you the level that the Dow is at, e.g. 26,568. Could it be that they don’t want to highlight the current administration’s success?

agree with last comment, Econ 101 and 102 should be required before you graduate, by college some bad habits are already lurking.

Wow! I only missed one, and I would have gotten that right if I had gone with my instinct. I had no idea I knew so much about finance! I have never even taken a class in it.

Several of these questions could have been worded much better.

Say, I’m wondering what a CUTE mongoose looks like… They kill cobras, ya know! Quick, agile, and fearless, I’d say.

Can someone help me with #6? If you open a savings account, and worry about low interest rate – don’t open a savings account, look into mutual funds, or the like. Opening a savings account that is not FDIC insured means that you can not only lose the interest, but the principal, too. Or, am I simply not considering that mutual funds can sort-of be construed to be “savings accounts”. I’ve always considered “savings accounts” to be a bank (or savings and loan) offering, where you can deposit or withdraw funds easily at will.

This is the first ‘wrong’ answer in 2 weeks… I was getting to like thinking I’m kind of smart…. Oh, well…

I just thought it has been kind of hard to find anything but a low interest savings account at the bank for about 10 years. But a least the government has had cheap money.

With respect to question #3…poorly stated…the “bottom line” is never about how much business a company has earned or lost but its NET PROFIT. When talking about how much business a company has “earned” (whether it actually EARNED that business or not), it is understood to mean “sales,” or “top line.” Just as when the media talks about how much a movie has “made,” they mistakenly use that term to describe revenue (sales) when, in the business world, “made” would refer to net profit, or “bottom line.”

14 out of 14 – for a 70 year old -school was good back in the 50’s and 60’s!

Missed # 8. I also forgot that the 1040 is the long form and the 1040A is the short form. No bid deal, that’s why I have an accountant prepare my tax returns.

A basic financial class should be required for all levels through high school. Too many are getting out of high school not understanding the impact of the financial decisions they make.

Totally agree, but you first have to get them to care! It takes a mighty long time for the current generation to take responsibility for themselves. They see money as plastic and elastic — not hard currency with great potential to work for them so they don’t have to work for it, forever. Hard lessons won over time. “Gotta have it…gotta have it now!”
