Financial Literacy Gets Worse After Financial Crisis

Little wonder, given the stellar journalism in the mainstream press (WSJ via Freakonomics):

In fact, Americans’ grasp of concepts such as investment risk and inflation has weakened since the recovery began in mid-2009. Research released last week shows that on a five-question test (take the test here), respondents did worse in 2012 than in 2009. The average number of correct answers fell to 2.9 in 2012 from 3.0 on the test in 2009.
