Main Purposes and Challenges in the Financial Education of Financial Consumers in the World
The level of financial literacy is unsatisfactory in most countries. The most important way to improve the level of financial literacy is financial education. One of the stage of the financial education process is to define its objectives. The particular countries define these objectives in different way, taking into account various levels of details in describing them. Only the specification and hierarchy of the most important objectives of financial education allow to define the priority areas of effective education. This justifies the need to systematize as well as create a hierarchy of objectives. This is a necessary condition for realization of the next stages of financial education, i.e. overcoming the difficulties and attempting the realization of these objectives (original abstract)
