National Consumer Protection Week
This week is National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW). Each year NCPW organizers choose a theme and this year's,"Financial Literacy: A Sound Investment," encourages people to master the financial facts of life. "It’s a sound investment: Financially savvy consumers are likely to make smarter decisions about managing their money, using credit wisely, and building a solid financial foundation for later."
