In Financial Diaries, Rachel Schneider digs under the surface and really gets into the nitty-gritty of American's financial lives including their hopes, dreams and struggles. Her poignant stories, including one about a family whose Sunday night meetings help them figure out what bills they can pay that week, will give you a deeper appreciation of what financial insecurity feels like. Financial Diaries laid bare the fact that a high percentage of Americans have challenges predicting their monthly income given the wide variances they experience month to month. This has real implications for how we teach budgeting to our students. Now at the Aspen Institute of Financial Security, Rachel continues to make a difference by developing ideas for financial products to serve vulnerable populations. Enjoy!
